Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets are one of the best teams in the league and leading in the Western Conference. The Serbian is having another stellar season and has put up the most triple-doubles this season than any other player. Till now he has made 25 triple-doubles, which is 15 more than his closest competitor, Luka Doncic. However, a video has resurfaced from 2021, where he is seen making a TikTok video with social media stars.
Nikola was featured in a TikTok video with Charlie D’Amelio, Dixie D’Amelio, and Addison Rae a couple of years back. We’ve seen many professional players going out of their way to make TikTok videos. However, this video from Nikola is uncharacteristic. Jokic is a funny guy, unlike how other people think otherwise due to his serious demeanor on the court. Nonetheless, some fans have seen the video and have mixed opinions about the star big man.

Some of the fans have commented on the video, showing their displeasure with the Joker. Jokic made a funny face at the end, however, it wasn’t well received by some of the fans. One fan wrote “Whoever’s idea this was needs jail time,” another user commented, “No way this is the most cringiest video I’ve ever seen,” “CRINGING SO HARD RN. “Some of the fans commented expressed their views against Jokic for winning an MVP this season and preferred Joel Embiid over the Joker. “That is why Embiid is better,” “Jokic should have an MVP Rescinded for this.”
Aside from the fans making fun of Jokic and questioning his MVP-level skills, he is indeed a player of the top level. The former MVP is allowed to enjoy himself off the court, and anyway, he wants to. There will be haters regardless of what he does.
Will Nikola Jokic beat Joel Embiid to make it his 3rd MVP award in a row?
For the past 2 seasons, Jokic has won the NBA MVP. He will be defending his crown once again this season. Jokic and the Nuggets are at the top of the Western Conference and have a commanding lead over other teams. Despite this, there are other players like Joel Embiid, Luka Doncic, and Giannis Antetokounmpo for the MVP. Considering everything, Nikola makes a serious case when we take a look at the triple-double leaders. No one comes close to him.
However, Jokic is in the top 5 in rebounds and assists, being 3rd and 4th respectively in the NBA stats. Joel Embiid on the other hand outshines Jokic in the points per game department. He is leading the stats with 33.3 points per game. It will be a strong tussle between a handful of players for the MVP. It will not be a straight road for either of the players to lift the first-ever Michael Jordan trophy.
