Nikola Jokic was asked about the Nuggets’ coaching when he launched into the non sequitur.
“Wilson didn’t score last night,” Jokic said. “I think he played really hard. He cares. He’s one of my favorite guys to play with because he doesn’t look like he’s emotional, but he really cares. He’s playing his ass off.”
The question posed to Jokic, which was about Nuggets coach Michael Malone, didn’t have much to do with Wilson Chandler, the player Jokic brought up in his answer. It was almost as if Jokic wanted to get something off his chest before he headed out for the summer.
