Nikola Jokic is certainly one of the best NBA players in the history of this sport. There is something really fascinating about his statistics and what he does on the floor. Jokic was a key player in the Denver Nuggets' campaign toward the title of NBA champion.
The question often arises as to whether the Serbian player is considered to be the best European player in the history of this league. Pau Gasol is mentioned as someone Jokic can be compared to. A few days ago, Paul Gasol made a comment about Nikola Jokic and his statistics regarding the NBA in a media interview.
There is a great deal of respect between the Spaniard and the Serb. "Jokić is a player who has been at the top level for years, with two MVP titles in the regular season and this year he could win it as well. I love it, because Nikola shows values that I think are very important and positive for sports.
Besides that he's at a high level (in terms of playing) and how amazing he is as a basketball player," Gasol said.

When they talk to him about parades and celebrations, he just wants to be at home with his family. Those are the important things that sports represent," concluded Gasol. It is true to say that Nikola Jokic is a player who always strives for the best and seeks to help the team at any given moment.
