After Denver Nuggets’ second-round playoffs exit, Nikola Jokic was spotted casually riding his horses back in Serbia. NBA Fans took no time to mock the 2021 MVP for the same.
Nikola Jokic is one of the greatest current generation players. The Denver Nuggets centre has completely revolutionised how the sport has become position-less. At 6-foot-11 tall, the Joker can handle, pass and shoot the rock as efficiently as a guard.
After a historic season, averaging 26.4 points, 10.8 rebounds and 8.3 assists per game, the Serbian superstar was named the 2021 MVP. His moment of happiness was short-lived as just a few days later, a Chris Paul-led Phoenix Suns swept the Denver Nuggets 4-0 in the Western Conference Semis.
Just a few days after his second-round playoffs exit, Jokic headed back home to Serbia. While the remaining teams battle it out in a closely-contested playoff, the 26-year-old All-Star was seen chilling, casually riding a horse.

NBA Fans roast Nikola Jokic for getting ‘dragged’ around by a horse, back in Serbia
We all know the special bond our MVP shares with riding horses. Very often we have seen Jokic at horse-racing events. Recently, when he was seen chilling on a horse chariot, NBA Fans didn’t spare the MVP and instantly roasted him.
Jokic: I’m done carrying my team, Horse can you carry me?
Horse: I gotchu

You know the horse was like “Great, the season is over and I gotta drag Nikola’s big ass around again ”

If the Nuggets ever win a NBA title…. this should be his parade float.

Being around horses, doing what he loves to do the most, apart from basketball, is probably the MVP’s way of coping with his shocking second-round exit. Well, we know for a fact that Nikola Jokic and co. will come back next season with a vengeance.
