Two days after it happened Jokic was still being asked about his one-handed fullcourt outlet pass to Jamal Murray against the Clippers. He has watched the replay, but he’s still not quite sure how the play happened so seamlessly. “Is it some connection? I just knew he’s gonna be. … I don’t know how,” Jokic said. “I cannot explain it. In my mind, he was there. When I look it up, he was there, so I just threw the ball.”

“I think for us, there is nothing more that we can do. We’ve done it. The city has done it. This franchise had done it. The coaches have done it. My teammates have done it. We’ve done our job. The best way to recruit somebody is to just be yourself over the course of the year, and I would assume that he knows what is here and what makes this place special,” VanVleet said at the team’s first media availability since winning the NBA title. “If it’s enough than it’s enough. If it’s not then it’s not. … We would all love for him to be back and if he’s not then we will move on from there. It’s not the biggest deal in the world. He came here and did what he was supposed to do. So he brought this city a championship and I think he has earned his freedom and his career to do what he wants to do and we’ll all respect him and admire him.”
