Denver Nuggets forward Aaron Gordon told NBA reporter Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN that superstar big man Nikola Jokic “works out like a monster.” Gordon visited Jokic in Serbia this offseason and the two champions worked out together.

“He’s the best player in the world,” Gordon said. “He works out like a monster. … His regimen, his diet and how detail-oriented he is with his body, is second to none.”

Jokic appeared in 69 games last season. The five-time All-Star averaged 24.5 points, 11.8 rebounds and 9.8 assists. The Joker recorded 58 double-doubles and 29 triple-doubles for the Nuggets.

The Nuggets beat the Heat in the NBA Finals in five games, with Jokic winning the Finals MVP Award. The two-time MVP averaged 30.2 points, 14.0 rebounds and 7.2 assists in the Finals.

Gordon has turned himself into an elite two-way player with the Nuggets. He not only averaged 16.3 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.0 assists last season, but Gordon also defended superstars such as Karl-Anthony Towns, Kevin Durant, LeBron James and Jimmy Butler in the 2023 playoffs. 

Gordon put up 13.3 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game in the 2023 postseason. He scored 27 points in Game 4 of the Finals versus the Heat, leading the Nuggets in scoring.

Gordon has developed a close relationship with Jokic, both on and off the court. All signs point toward Gordon spending the rest of his career with the Nuggets.
