Nikola Jokic (2014)
Admittedly, Serbian center Nikola Jokić doesn’t always physically look the part of a 7-foot basketball savant. But as the saying goes: that’s why you should never judge a book by its cover. That must be what NBA teams did, though, as Jokic fell to the 41st overall pick of the 2014 NBA Draft, despite being one of the best basketball players in the basketball-crazy Balkan region. But as the Denver Nuggets began to play Jokić more and more, they realized they have the most gifted passing big man since perhaps Arvydas Sabonis.
