Nikola Jokic is the reigning NBA MVP, a player who plays hard on the basketball court and dominates on the offensive end in every way imaginable. Jokic isn’t soft at all either, something Markieff Morris found out when he fell victim to the Serb’s annoyance earlier in the season.
However, Jokic is also a very good kid, a player who has often shown his love for the game when he is on the pitch and does what he does so well. This season though, he’s showing a different kind of love, with NBABuzz on Instagram spotting the wholesome gesture Jokic has made towards his wife in every game this season.
Jokic has laced his wedding ring on his trainers for every game this season, quite a warm and affectionate gesture from the big man. Whether that improved his game or not is hard to say since he just continued where he left off last season, playing at MVP level and carrying his Denver Nuggets into the automatic Western Conference playoff spots.
The Joker married his longtime girlfriend Natalija Macesic in Serbia in October 2020. The love also remained strong after the wedding, with Jokic displaying an example of what his wife and their relationship means to him. Jokic and Macesic have been together since 2013 and have a daughter together named Ognjena who was born in 2021.
The alliance has witnessed true greatness from Jokic this season, with the Nuggets center averaging 25 points, 13 rebounds and nearly 8 assists per game. These numbers are truly astonishing, but comparable to the journey of Jokic, who became arguably the best big point guard the NBA has ever seen. Nuggets fans will be hoping that form continues as Denver hopes to improve on its 30-24 record and clinch an automatic playoff spot.
