Nikola Jokic runs circles around James Wiseman
Despite being drafted in 2020, James Wiseman has 73 games to show for in his career. While a majority of it can be attributed to his injuries, the other part can be because of lack of rotation minutes with the Warriors. He hasn’t been able to play against a lot of the elite big men in the league.
Knowing that, Nikola Jokic decided to have fun with Wiseman. While making a move to the basket, the 2x MVP put Wiseman on a spin cycle and made him lose his way.

Come on man, that’s just plain bullying by the MVP frontrunner. I guess it’s Jokic’s revenge on Wiseman for making him tip the ball into his own basket.
