Nikola Jokic is the NBA's reigning MVP and has continued this season where he left off last season, putting up incredible numbers while almost single-handedly carrying the Denver Nuggets into automatic qualification for the NBA playoffs. The Joker is one of the league's most well-liked players, his style of play and generally endearing personality have ensured that he is a huge hit among fans of the sport as well as a lot of his fellow stars in the league.
While Jokic is incredible on the court, one of the things that fascinate people the most about his life off it is his two brothers. Nemanja and Strahinja, Jokic's brothers caught the attention of the NBA world when they were seen vehemently supporting Nikola as he got into a bit of an altercation with Devin Booker during the playoffs last season.
Things went a step further when they also seemingly picked a fight with Markieff Morris on Twitter following his bust-up with Jokic during a game between the Heat and the Nuggets. And now, the duo is back in the stands for All-Star Weekend, with Denver reporter Vic Lombardi sharing a video of them in the stands in Cleveland.
And the fans that love to see the support that the two provide for their brother have taken to Twitter saying that the duo's presence is likely to stop any other player from getting into a beef with the Denver star.

Nuggets_Brasil: "Nikola Jokic's father and brothers are in Cleveland. Strahinja scares me even when he's being nice."
NIBS: "The Bros hanging out at Allstar weekend waiting for the Morris twins to pull up."
Lionel Bienvenue: "Hope nobody commits a hard foul on Nikola."
Kelvin: "These two here would take care of Morris in the fight without much problem."
Jokic Burner: "I bet Nikola's dad is so proud."
FunnDown: "Where is Morris twins?”
The All-Star Weekend is an amicable environment with very little scope for any hostility, so these are all jokes for the most part. While the brothers would no doubt want to get involved if anyone tries to mess with their brother, this is surely a time where they are just there to enjoy their brother's greatness and watch him have some fun in the All-Star game.
