The FORGOTTEN FOOTAGE That Convinced The Nuggets To Draft Nikola Jokic!
The FORGOTTEN FOOTAGE That Convinced The Nuggets To Draft Nikola Jokic!

Under the leadership of superstar Nikola Jokic, the Denver Nuggets have become one of the most exciting teams in the Western Conference.

Those who listen to their games on the flagship radio broadcast for the Nuggets, Altitude Sports Radio 92.9 FM in Denver, hear a unique way of presenting the starting lineup for the squad. Fans are given a splash of personality for the team as each player announces their own name, number, position and school.

It is a standard rundown for a basketball team explaining the simple task of where they played college basketball. Jamal Murray identifies himself as a guard from Kentucky, where he set the record for most points per game in program history as a freshman. Will Barton calls himself a forward from Memphis, where he won Conference USA Player of the Year in 2012.

Jokic doesn’t say where he plays on the floor because, as the league’s assist leader with 10.4 assists per game, he represents the modern poster child for positionless basketball. Then, when asked about his university, Jokic says that he went to Harvard.

Harvard’s own Nikola Jokic 😭

Except, here is the thing, Jokic was certainly never a student at Harvard.

Jokic, who was selected in the second round of the 2014 NBA draft, was born and raised in Serbia. He was a draft-and-stash prospect who played for Mega Bemax in the Adriatic League. Before he joined Mega, Jokic played youth basketball for Vojvodina Srbijagas in Novi Sad, Serbia.

So if you’re reading this, Jeremy Lin, don’t worry. Your place in history as the best basketball player to ever attend Harvard has not changed. Joel Embiid, however, may have to worry about his place as the funniest big man in the NBA as Jokic is clearly giving him a run for his money.

You are watching: ‘Uh … Harvard.’ Nikola Jokic has an all-time hilarious starting lineup intro for himself. Info created by GBee English Center selection and synthesis along with other related topics.
