One of the main questions basketball fans have about the NBA season restart is about what kind of shape players will be in physically. Being that guys are not playing high-level basketball on a daily basis, it is definitely reasonable to ask. For Denver Nuggets All-Star Nikola Jokic, that is definitely not of any concern right now.
Is that supposed to be Jokic or Porzingis? We can’t tell.
With more time on his hands, Jokic was able to shed some pounds similar to how NFL players do so following retirement. NBA Twitter had plenty of jokes about seeing The Joker's new weight loss.
For reference, here is a before and after of The Joker once the season started and now eight months later.
For a kid that used to drink multiple liters of Coca-Cola on a daily basis, Jokic is a long way from the person he once was. His heavyset frame is now a thing of the past. It looks like slim Jokic will now be leading the way for Denver going into the rest of the shortened season.
