It looks like the rest of the NBA is in deep trouble. The Joker already has 2 MVP titles and an NBA title to his name at 28-years-old. As per Gordon, NBA fans around the world are yet to see the best version of the Serbian.

“He’s the best player in the world. He works out like a monster. His regimen, his diet, and how detail-oriented he is with his body, are second to none”, said Gordon. Moreover, the Nuggets star also revealed how Jokic is yet to reach his ceiling. “He’s only 28. So he’s going to get even smarter at manipulating the defense [and] offense.
