What should we call this new Jokic shot?

New, comments

Jokic has shown off a unique shot this season - now we need to bequeath it a title.

NBA: Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

As Nuggets fans we recognize that Nikola Jokic is a uniquely talented basketball player. He does things on the basketball court that the NBA has never seen before, whipping passes over his head and launching one-handed push shots in the post.

This season, Jokic has shown off a one-legged fadeaway that is extremely Jokic.

He busted this shot out against Portland too, earlier in the season. It’s not patterned after the patented Dirk Nowitzki fadeaway, which has been borrowed by other elite scorers like Kevin Durant. This shot is definitely different, but also stupid effective.

Let’s hear some of your suggestions for this shot attempt. As for me, I’m going with “The Sombor Shuffle.”
