Nikola Jokic is in New York — and he goes to see a horse race

Nikola Jokic’s love for horses runs deep: the man told the NBA TV crew on the court within hours of winning the NBA crown that the pressure was on him to win that night so he could go back to Serbia and watch his horses race (his reaction when he found out about the championship parade was stunning). Jokic’s new Hotels.com ad campaign with teammate Peyton Watson also features ponies.

Denver is in New York to face the Nets on Friday night, so on Thursday night Jokic drove more than 30 minutes to Yonkers Raceway to stand in the cold and watch the racehorses.
