Nuggets big man Jokic rises from 41st pick to 2-time NBA MVP

DENVER (AP) To think, Nikola Jokic's entry into the NBA was once overshadowed by the introduction of the "quesarito."

"Hopefully, I'm going to have some percentage from Taco Bell," joked the Denver Nuggets' newly minted two-time MVP, whose name scrolled across the TV screen during the 2014 draft while the fast-food chain aired a commercial for its new product.

Much like the "quesarito" - a burrito wrapped in a quesadilla - the 7-footer is different. He has the vision of a point guard and a wide array of low-post moves. He has plenty of range, too.
