It’s good to be a legend on the court; but it’s just as important to be a role model off the court. It’s not necessarily obvious to all athletes; but an interior does very well in the West. One of his trainers even released a great statement on the subject!
When we talk about Nikola Jokic; we necessarily think about his crazy performances in matches. The reigning MVP is dominant again in 2021-22; with almost 26 points; 14 rebounds and 7 average assists! He has also released a new absolute madness against Jazz; signing an unprecedented performance in the era of 3-point shooting. Unfortunately; that wasn’t enough to prevent Denver’s loss (115-109).
However; the Serb had absolutely nothing to be ashamed of after the match; and the members of the Colorado franchise know that very well. On the contrary; they preferred to shower him with praise! Acting coach in the absence of Mike Malone; Popeye Jones remarkably highlighted the human quality within him. Specifically; a rather striking phrase was allowed at a press conference:
Nikola Jokic praised for his human qualities
Popeye Jones on Nikola Jokic: -He’s a special guy. He’s the kind of person that if I had a daughter; I’d want my daughter to bring Nikola Jokic home and say; ‘Hey Dad; this is who I’m going to marry.’ I know I would be in good hands. “

Popeye Jones on Nikola Jokic: -He’s a really special guy. He’s the kind of man who; if I had a daughter; I’d like him to bring Nikola Jokic home to me and say; “Dad; I’m going to marry him.” I know I would be in very good hands then. “
Not necessarily seen on the floors this season; the Joker was involved in a big fight in November; in particular. And then from time to time there are blood shots that give him technical fouls … and yet the No. 15 is sincerely appreciated by everyone in the locker room; being questioned by absolutely no one. At the same time; no one wants to drive away their siblings !
Joking aside; this kind of exemplary attitude off the field is sure to be a good sign for the Nuggets; who can build on a stable foundation. With such a franchise player in their ranks; a small market will surely have a better chance of attracting free agents; who are looking for a position to fight for the top spots. While Jamal Murray is still missing; Denver is in the Top 8. It’s clearly not a coincidence.
Leader both by the level of play and by example; Nikola Jokic has all the ideal son-in-law. It remains to be seen if he would stay that way; if his siblings were invited to the family reunion!
