Doc Rivers Calls Nikola Jokic “Best Passing Big Man Ever”
Doc Rivers on Jokic: He’s very good, and he’s very frustrating to watch on film
Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers knows how valuable Nikola Jokic is to the Denver Nuggets, and just how good he is.
“Oh man, he’s good. I don’t know if there is a comparison,” says Rivers of who Jokic reminds him of.
“He has a little bit of everybody. He has all of the footwork and moves of a (Hakeem) Olajuwon. The lanky and the goofy, like goofy intelligence, of Kevin McHale. He’s just good.”
“He’s the best passing big that I’ve seen, I think, ever,” said Rivers.
