So, yes, Jokic, the scorer can be extremely versatile and devastating, and he’s beginning to better realize, the pass-loving big man that he is, that there are instances that require him to gravitate toward more of a scoring role. But the beauty of Jokic, and what speaks most clearly to his legitimate candidacy as an All-NBA player, is that he rarely loses sight of who he is and what makes him special, even if he doesn’t fully realize how special he is. Jokic is ultimately at his best when he is the do-it-all magician he has become the last two seasons. […] “To even watch his growth from the beginning of the year to the end of the year and watch his confidence level continue to rise to one of the stars in this league, it’s been impressive,” Nuggets forward Paul Millsap said of Jokic. “For me to watch that, it’s been great to watch it firsthand. He can only get better from here.”

“This is my f—ing house!” Stephen Curry cursed in celebration after ending his frustration. Stunned NBA fans worldwide read his lips, and fans at Oracle Arena saw the replay on the JumboTron. The devout Christian got caught up in the emotion of the moment but was apologetic after his Golden State Warriors’ 126-85 blowout win against the Houston Rockets in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals on Sunday. “If they ever thought I was perfect, then they got the wrong message to begin with,” said Curry, the favorite active athlete among kids 12-17, according to a 2017 ESPN Sports Poll. “I try to do the right things all the time. I have an awareness of who I represent on the court. In that moment, I fell a little short. I have to try to do better next time.”
Potential No. 1 pick in the 2018 Draft Luka Doncic won the EuroBasket playing under a Serbian coach: Igor Kokoskov. The newly appointed Phoenix Suns head coach isn’t the only Serbian that the Real Madrid star would play with. “Hard question… We all know who is Zeljko (Obradovic), and then there is Sasha Djordjevic. There are a lot of good coaches. And for Serbian players, I think (Bogdan) Bogdanovic. We are friends, he is a great player, I could learn a lot [from him],” Doncic said to Serbian website Telegraf.rs when asked if there are any Serbian coaches or players he’d choose to work with.
