Jokic has a HUGE problem after NBA title: he doesn’t know how to get back to Serbia in time to see his horse races

The Denver Nuggets will hold their title parade on Thursday after winning their first NBA title in franchise history tonight in Game 5 against the Miami Heat. As usual, Nikola Jokic had another memorable performance in this championship-deciding win. There will surely be a festive atmosphere in town in the coming days but Jokic is just thinking about his horses.

For his part, however, Jokic has other things on his mind besides the victory parade. During his postgame interview with the NBA TV crew, Jokic revealed that he needs to be home by Sunday to attend his horse races. With the celebration scheduled for Thursday, it will be a tight schedule for the newly crowned NBA Finals MVP. According to Joker, he will have to ask a big favor of Nuggets team owner Josh Kroenke:

“I have to be home on Sunday, I have my horse races, I don’t know how I can get there on time…I’ll ask Josh to give me a plane.”.

As the hosts said during the broadcast, we are pretty sure that Kroenke will be more than willing to lend the team plane to his superstar big man for his return trip. Josh probably won’t give Jokic his own private jet, so for now Nikola will have no choice but to make do with the team plane.
