Nikola Jokic wasn’t at his best early on this season but he managed to get back to his All-Star form. The Serbian big thinks he just got out of a shooting slump but admitted he also lost quite a bit of weight throughout the season.
“It just happened. Maybe I needed a little bit more time to warm up, to get going. I think I didn’t really shoot that well in the first period [of the season]. My shots were always off and short. And I was a little bit overweight and now I lost a lot of weight and I’m feeling good out there,” he told ESPN.
When asked how much weight he lost, Jokic said “around 20-25 pounds” (10 kilograms = 22 pounds) and credited the Nuggets strength coach Felipe Eichenberger for providing him with the necessary diet and workout plans
Hear it from Jokic himself while he also talked about the Nuggets run in front of the All-Star break as well as his ability to make the clutch shots:
