Jokic with the 3rd best defensive rating among centers this season


The narrative that he sucks at defensive is simply false. But there is definitely something off about him this year.

I don't know if he's worn out from playing internationally during the offseason, or if his brother's legal issues are weighing on his mind, or what. But he has games where he doesn't seem in it mentally, especially on offense. Granted, hasn't had an 0-11 type game like Embiid had, but does have multiple single digit point nights. But the Nuggets are also 5-1 in those games. So who knows.

Anyone that follows the Nuggets knows that he starts slow every season, hopefully he turns it around.
