Add another accolade to the growing list of achievements for the NBA’s reigning MVP, Nikola Jokic. The Joker made history last night in Denver’s win over Minnesota, becoming the team’s all-time leader in assists at 3,680. The moment came on an inbounds pass to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who threw it down for a dunk.
Jokic’s teammates gave him a standing ovation for the effort and even the former record holder, Alex English appreciated it. The Hall of Famer posted on Twitter to congratulate the Joker.
I knew that eventually my all time assist record would be broken.
I'm honored to see that it's 2 time, I mean 3 time MVP of the NBA do it. Congrats big fella. #Joker #NikolaJokic

Jokic himself is also warming hearts with his own comments about his efforts.
