A couple short weeks ago we saw the shocking debut of skinny Nikola Jokic and his new physique during a basketball practice in Europe:
Jokic then tested positive for COVID and had his return to the U.S. and Denver Nuggets delayed. But now he’s cleared from COVID and putting in work in the Orlando NBA bubble. And while you can’t judge how this weight loss will affect the now skinny Nikola Jokic off of one practice clip, this could very well be a brand new man we see in the NBA’s restart:

It’s hard not to love the previous big Serbian bear that Nikola Jokic was before. But this new Kristaps Porzingis-looking Jokic could be a beast to deal with in the NBA’s restart.
RIP to our former Winnie the Pooh-resembling Jokic. He died so that our new Super Jokic can live:
