The Nuggets played the Cavaliers last night which meant we got to witness the much-anticipated LeBron James vs. Jusuf Nurkic match-up.
For those who aren’t Nuggets fans or DraftKings addicts, Jusuf Nurkic is just another foreign-born center in the international revolving door that is the Denver Nuggets center position. Jusuf A. Banks is the type of guy who will randomly put up a double-double off the bench and then play five minutes the next game before leaving with a knee contusion.
Nurkic is a pretty talented player actually and showed it when he impressively denied LeBron at the rim. He then decided to stare LeBron down and say something to him afterwards.
The King gets denied. https://t.co/FNjSq8HW0n

This was a mistake for a guy who fights for center minutes behind Nikola Jokic and “King” Joffrey Lauvergne because LeBron doesn’t forget.

The Nuggets ended up losing by more than 30 and LeBron had a triple-double.
