Nuggets center Nikola Jokic is wise beyond his years as a basketball player.

So maybe he knows what he’s talking about for tonight’s Rising Stars Challenge, when his World Team will face the U.S. Team.

Jokic:

We’re going to kick their ass.

This bulletin-board material will surely motivate the Americans to play lockdown defense, compete for every rebound and dive for every loose ball once again coast through an exhibition that makes the All-Star game look serious.
