Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic Wears Tribute On Shoes Every Game (Video)

Denver Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic is playing some of the best basketball of his career.

During a recent outing, eagle-eyed NBA fans noticed something shiny on Jokic’s shoe.

As it turns out, there is a very meaningful story behind it:

The revelation really struck a chord with a lot of fans.

They immediately took to social media to react:

That said, not everyone got sappy over it.

Needless to say, Jokic’s tribute is a much more wholesome family story than the one that involved him last year.

As things currently stand, the Nuggets are 24-12 and sit atop the Western Conference. There is chatter about them having one big trade target in mind to provide Jokic with some assistance, but time will tell if that deal ultimately materializes.

Either way, though – if Jamal Murray can get healthy as the season progresses that will sort of be like making a big time acquisition without actually making one.

Jokic seems very dialed in this year. Not even courtside distractions in the form of models have been able to break his concentration.

From an individual standpoint, Jokic has already accomplished everything there is to accomplish.

Now he just needs to win the one thing that has eluded him thus far in his NBA career: a championship.
