WATCH: Russell Westbrook’s shoulder check on Nikola Jokic sent him flying back to Serbia

Serbian big-man Nikola Jokic had a sophomore season to remember… Winning silver in the Rio Olympics then parlaying that into a 17/10 year for the Denver Nuggets and coming into this season, there’s a lot of expectation on Jokic to lead the Nuggets back to the Playoffs for the first time since 2012/13.

His play last year has given Nuggets fans hope that he is a building block for the future, but judging from an incident today against reigning MVP Russell Westbrook, it’s hard to describe Jokic as a ‘block’.

In the middle of a half-court set, Westbrook shoulder checked Jokic, sending the big-man crashing to the floor.

This is meaningless pre-season basketball at it’s finest.
