In a remarkable display of talent, Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic achieved yet another milestone in his NBA career.

On Monday night, he secured a triple-double, surpassing the legendary LeBron James and Jason Kidd to claim the 4th position in the all-time list of triple-doubles in NBA history. This impressive feat places Jokic in the esteemed company of Russell Westbrook, Oscar Robertson, and Magic Johnson.

Jokic, renowned as the best passing center in NBA history, has redefined the role by becoming a primary facilitator at an unparalleled level. His ability to accumulate triple-doubles from the center position is a testament to his unique skills, enabling him to dominate the game in various aspects.

While Jokic continues to rise through the ranks of historic achievements, his primary focus remains on winning. The Denver Nuggets have demonstrated their dominance in the Western Conference, boasting a remarkable 7-1 record through their first eight games of the season.

Without any signs of a championship hangover, Jokic and the Nuggets appear determined to defend their first franchise title with another championship this year. With Jokic's exceptional performance, Denver remains a strong contender in the NBA.

As he accumulates more triple-doubles, Jokic's sights are set on Magic Johnson, who currently sits 30 triple-doubles ahead of him. Catching up to Magic this season would be an incredible achievement, but given Jokic's current form, it's a challenging but not impossible goal.
