Nikola Jokic reunites once again with Novak Djokovic, months after drunken night out

Denver Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic is renowned for his unique interests and hobbies that distinguish him from other NBA stars, who often indulge in activities associated with metropolitan cities.

Jokic, on the other hand, finds pleasure in the simple joys of life, from spending time with horses to enjoying nights filled with beer and alcoholic beverages, especially when in the company of his fellow countryman, Novak Djokovic.

Earlier today, the Denver Nuggets faced the in-form Los Angeles Lakers at the Arena in Los Angeles. The crowd was filled with A-list celebrities, musicians and artists who were all lined up to see the Joker take on The King in a battle that would be remembered no matter what.

It was also the night when LeBron James made NBA history by finally becoming the sole member of the 40,000 points club after he scored his 40,000th point against the Nuggets. With the game going back and forth, both teams were locked in from the beginning trying to assert their dominance over the other. In the end, the Nuggets went on an unmatchable run and left the in-form Lakers in the dust.

Watching the entire spectacle unfold before his eyes was the legendary tennis superstar, Novak Djokovic, who made his way into the Los Angeles Lakers’ arena to witness his fellow native, Nikola Jokic, go head-to-head against the timeless LeBron James. And indeed, Djoker received a visual treat from the Joker.

Facing the impending threat of LeBron James and the Lakers, Nikola Jokic solidified his case for another MVP title this season. Logging 38 minutes against the Purple and Gold, Jokic led the team with a mesmerizing 35 points, accompanied by 10 rebounds and 7 assists. The superstar achieved this while shooting an impressive 16 of 25 from the field.

On the other hand, record breaker LeBron James ended the night with 26 points, 4 rebounds and 9 assists. While it worked like a charm against the Clippers, LeBron’s fourth quarter antics weren’t enough for the Lakers to beat the Nuggets. That being said, it was a really entertaining game for tennis maestro Novak Djokovic to watch.

Following the strenuous game, both the Serbians linked up to celebrate Jokic’s victory almost months after their famed night out which caught the attention of the sporting world.

Very often, Jokic shares his dream of settling down back in his country of Serbia, to admire the simplicity and tranquility of life that he does not receive from the busy, metropolitan cities of the United States.
