Nikola Jokic is ridiculously talented and able to complete all sorts of absurd passes. Please enjoy another moment of his greatness.

The Denver Nuggets have one of the best basketball players in the world in Nikola Jokic. What their star center is able to do is almost otherworldly. Given his size, he’s a tough person to be matched up against. But still, Jokic’s skillset is really impressive, even if you don’t consider his size and strength.

Like the fact that he’s able to easily dish out some truly bizarre and impressive passes that few other players have any business attempting.

Just check out this pass from the second quarter of the Nuggets’ blowout win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Jokic, without hesitation, sends the ball screaming through the air, across the court, past two defenders, and right into the hands of his teammate, who somehow doesn’t burst into flames as he catches that pass.

Unfortunately for the Nuggets and for basketball lovers everywhere, ultimately nothing comes of that pass. The subsequent shot from Monte Morris ended up missing, which is unfortunate, but it’s not the end of the world. Things happen.

And still, we got to witness a pass that probably shouldn’t ever be attempted. Seriously. This pass is insane.

The NBA is full of phenomenal athletes. There are so many ridiculously talented individuals playing at basketball’s highest level. Even with all the talent assembled in the NBA, it still feels like there are a handful of players that would be remotely talented enough to even attempt some sort of pass like this.
