Dan Beyer & Olden Polynice are filling in for Doug today and they are reacting to game 3 of last night’s NBA Finals. Denver Nuggets C Nikola Jokić had another dominant performance and the guys debate his position on the list of all-time greatest centers in the history of the NBA. Having actually played against the likes Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Hakeem Olajuwon and Shaquille O’Neal, Olden thinks the Joker would have a hard time putting up those numbers if he were playing against better opposition.

Olden Polynice: “No disrespect to Bam Adebayo but...he’s not a Shaquille O’Neal, he’s not a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, he’s not an Hakeem Olajuwon, he’s not David Robinson. He’s none of these guys.”
