Nikola Jokic is one win away from his first NBA finals, having won two straight MVPs before Joel Embiid got his first this season. And his brothers were on hand to support him as he snatched a win in Los Angeles on Saturday night.
Perhaps they went over the line in their excitement, as they mocked an elderly Jack Nicholson after the Denver Nuggets took a 3-0 lead in the series.
Nicholson is one of the oldest and most popular Lakers fans around and used to be a regular sighting at games on the sidelines. But he’s 86 now, so appearances are now few and far between.
That didn’t stop Jokic’s brothers from taking shots at the famed actor, as you could see in the video below.
Jokic’s brothers have built a reputation as bullies and are always in the news for some reason or the other. But going at an old man who just watched his team lose is in poor taste.
The Nuggets and Lakers will play out Game 4 of their Western Conference finals matchup on Monday night and are favorites to close the series out at the soonest opportunity, with a finals clash against the Miami Heat looking ever likely as Erik Spoelstra coached his team to a third straight victory against the Boston Celtics on Sunday night.
Jimmy Butler has made little secret of his disdain for Jokic and his brothers, which stems following that incident with Markieff Morris in 2021.
It could be as spicy a curtain closer as we’ve seen in a while.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
