Check out how mean and lean Nikola Jokic looks during the break [VIDEO]

Denver Nuggets C Nikola Jokic has appeared to have slimmed down during the quarantine. He looks ready to go for the postseason. Should we be concerned?

Denver Nuggets C Nikola Jokic is a big dude. When you’re a 7-footer in the NBA and you’ve got to bang down low with the best in the biz, you need some bulk. Jokic doesn’t play that style of game but it’s the position he plays. At least for now ...

In a video via Bojan Brezovac on Twitter, we see a very slimmed-down Jokic during a basketball game in Belgrade in his native Serbia.

Now, I mean it doesn’t take an expert to see that Jokic has definitely lost some weight during the pandemic break. We don’t know any of the details of course, but assuming Jokic took the time off to get in shape rather than couch potato it up like the rest of us.

The Joker is looking like the giant point guard we know and love. Does this mean Jokic is going to change his game up at all? We know he’s a great passer but is he going to be out there running the break like a gazelle? This might be what I’m looking forward to the most when the NBA is back in late July.
