Nikola Jokic’s brothers were on hand this past week for the Denver Nuggets’ most recent victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.
Heading into Friday evening’s game, the stars were out in L.A. Lakers super fan and Hollywood legend Jack Nicholson was also in attendance.
Unfortunately, as the Lakers got thoroughly thumped by the Nuggets, Jokic’s brothers felt the need to mock and troll Nicholson.
“See you next year!”

NBA fans and Laker fans are some of the most vocal people around, so naturally many took to social media to offer their takes.
Cocaine is a hell of a drug 😭😭

They trash talking a 90 year old man that won’t remember the Lakers even played when he gets home, hope they feel accomplished

Obviously this isn’t the first time Jokic’s brothers have found themselves in the headlines.
Between their wild partying ways and lack of hesitation to throw down at a moment’s notice, they are mainstays in the news cycle.
Looks like Bronny had a good time at prom. https://t.co/X2DxR8AMsX

With Denver seemingly on its way to easily dispatch Los Angeles in the Western Conference Finals, the stage is set for an epic Nuggets vs Miami Heat showdown in the NBA Finals.
Few hate Jokic and his brothers more than Jimmy Butler, and it will be interesting to see if that ultimately culminates in fireworks on the grandest hoops stage of all.
