Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic receives prank payback birthday gift from Paul Millsap


For Paul Millsap’s birthday earlier this month, Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic jokingly got Millsap, 35, a walking stick for “his 50th birthday.”

As a bit of revenge, Millsap got Jokic a special gift for his 25th birthday on Wednesday. As a sort of counter to Jokic’s gift, Millsap gave his Nuggets teammate a bottle of Gerber baby food and a bib hinting at Jokic being the young guy on the team compared to Millsap being the older veteran.

On the court, Millsap has continued to be a solid presence for the Nuggets. Averaging 12.1 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game while shooting 47.6 percent from the field and 44.0 percent from deep, the four-time All-Star is still effective even in his mid-thirties.

As for the younger player on the Nuggets’ frontcourt, Jokic has once again proven himself as one of, if not the best centers in the NBA. The Serbian seven-footer is putting up a career-high 20.6 points per game to go along with 10.2 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game.
