Nikola Jokic 2017-18 Season Outlook

Recommended Posts

I commented before the season started that the hype train for this guy was unprecedented. .Fanbois and cheerleaders thinking he was a top 5 pick , a mix of Magic , Bird , Robinson and Kareem X infinity . 

 

Still it's 2 games in , lots of guys are not performing, Nurk , Lowry etc. Give the guy a little leash lol , he went from consensus number 1 to bum in seconds flat.

No plays drawn up for him, not looking to make offensive plays, looks out of shape... the list goes on. He's far away from performing as a top 10 fantasy asset - majorly due to the number of options Denver has on the offensive end. Doubt he finishes at his ADP.

2 games does not a season make...

How has dude only taken 2 shots????

Jamal Murray has apparently never seen a shot he didn't like.  Currently 1 for 9.

Coach Malone being a s**thead. Same thing as last season. But it's waaaay too early to overreact. He'll pick it up with his sheer talent alone.

People last year were dropping in 2 weeks in as well.

 

Please go right ahead and sell pennies on the dollar.

 

You'll be looking at this thread/avoiding posting once he starts to eat. 


Don't let the door hit you on your way out.

The pieces that Denver currently has (Millsap) and the improvement of Harris means that the offense no longer goes through Jokic. Big trouble for Jokic owners.

Dropping is out of the question obviously. It's still fair to point out that his lack of involvement on offense is concerning.

Exactly. His turning point last season (after he got off to a slow start) was when coach realized that the guy was talented and started running the offense through him. Unfortunately with the arrival of Millsap, Harris coming to life and the development of Murray, the offense no longer runs through Jokic, and he's back to where he was at the start of last season. I don't see the same thing happening again this season as there are too many mouths to feed.

Seven assists from a center kinda belies that.

0-3 belies that. Especially from the #10 overall pick in 99% of drafts lmao.
