Houston Rockets big man hopes to emulate Denver Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic

Serbian sensation Nikola Jokic has grown into a superstar during his time with the Denver Nuggets. Originally drafted in the second round of the 2014 NBA Draft, Jokic has been named to five NBA All-Star teams, five All-NBA teams, and has led the Nuggets to their first-ever NBA championship.

He’s become something of a role model for younger European talents in the NBA, like Houston Rockets center Alperen Sengun. Sengun recently chatted with Semih Tuna of EuroHoops, and discussed his goals as an NBA player.

Amongst those was to win an NBA title, like Jokic did last season in Denver.
