The Denver Nuggets are on the path of creating history in the NBA. With their 4-0 sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers and their game 4 wins of 113-111, they are on the verge of winning their first NBA championship while advancing to the playoffs. All-time leading scorer of the NBA and Lakers player LeBron James was unable to shine against Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets on the other side of the court.
But it was not just only the players who were battling it out on the court making headlines during the Western Conference finals. Amidst the tough matchup, Nikola Jokic’s brothers also had the spotlight on themselves, as fans were comparing their antics on the stands to the controversial Jackson Mahomes, the younger brother of Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes.
Nikola Jokic is a player unlike anyone else. With the way he commandeers the court for his team, this humble beast is a powerhouse of talent with the ball. And his performance during the Denver Nuggets’ historical run this season has been a testament to the skills and humility he possesses as an individual. He also won the Western Conference MVP Award because of his extravagant performance in the NBA.
But the spotlight during the series sweep against the Lakers was not only limited to the on-court moments. Nikola Jokic’s brothers Strahinja and Nemanja Jokic were making their own headlines off-court. After the game 4 win and the 4-0 sweep of the Lakers, the brothers were seen celebrating with Jamal Murray’s dad. Not only this, but we also saw Strahinja Jokic picking up Head Coach Mike Malone to celebrate this historic win.
Amidst the celebrations, the brothers also found themselves in the midst of criticism. After their game 3 victory against the Lakers, Jackson Mahomes found himself being compared to the Jokic brothers.
