Dan Patrick reacts to the Denver Nuggets defeating the Miami Heat to become NBA Champions. While there was a ton of praise to go around, he gave the highest honors to Nikola Jokic, who he believes may have had one of the great postseason runs we've ever seen.
"Nikola Jokic was wonderful throughout the entire postseason. This is one of the great postseason runs we've ever seen. Now you're going to get people who say, 'yeah, but it's an older LeBron, it's an older Kevin Durant, Miami didn't really have a great frontline.' You're gonna get excuses for Joker putting up these numbers. HE WON. He beat the team that was in front of him, and he was impressive. 600 points, 269 rebounds, 190 assists, the first player in NBA history to lead the league and points, rebounds, and assists in a single season. These are impressive numbers, incredible numbers. 30, 13.5, 9.5 for the postseason. The only other player to do that was Oscar Robinson, and that was back in 1963."
