The wedding came just a month after Jokic and his team ended a respectable campaign in the NBA bubble, posting 24.4 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 5.7 assists in the playoffs against the Jazz, Clippers, and Lakers.
His Nuggets also became the first team in NBA history to overcome two 3-1 deficits in the same playoff run.
Jokic, who turns 26 in February, is set to make over $90 million over the next three seasons, making him one of the NBA’s highest-paid big men.
As a newlywed gearing up for what is likely to be a huge season, it’s going to be a busy year for Nikola. As he starts a family of his own, he will be looking to cement himself in the basketball world as one of the best players in the game. As a playmaker and amazing shot maker, he certainly has the skills to continue his tear through the league, and it will be up to the Nuggets to surround him with the pieces he needs to finally take them over the top.
It will be interesting to see how he fairs in that mission.
