Nikola Jokic has been on a pretty emotional roller coaster this week, going from the high of winning his first NBA title to the low point of learning he can’t just go home and hang out with his horses because of the parade of the championship only to discover that he actually likes championship parades.
The two-time MVP even stayed for the post-show celebration in Vegas, where he danced and was apparently the reason Bruce Brown was out of action the next morning.
However, time was running out when he returned home as he had business to attend to on Sunday. It’s the day his beloved horses race, as he explained to the NBA TV panel on Monday night after winning the title, joking that he might need to fly from the team to get him home in time for the races. Whether he flew in from Kroenke or managed to arrange his own trip, he was able to do so on Sunday, as he was there to watch his horses in action.
For one thing, it’s an incredible fit he pulls off, looking like a gigantic Serbian Adam Sandler in a polo shirt, yellow gym shorts and a really good “No Jokic” hat. Hopefully his horses did well but he’s a man who looks like he’s having a good time on the track no matter the outcome and will be back every Sunday in the summer now that his job is ended.
