Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic reveals his mission for All-Star break in 3 words

Nikola Jokic All-Star Break Nuggets

It sure looks like Denver Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic has already mapped out his plans for the upcoming All-Star break. The Joker has been selected as a starter for Team LeBron in this year’s All-Star Game on March 7 which means his break won’t be as long as everyone else’s. With that being said, Jokic plans on taking full advantage of the four days that he won’t need to gear up and hold a basketball in any serious manner.

When asked what he was intending to do during his short break, Jokic dished out his plans in epic fashion.

“Maybe eat bad,” The Joker mentioned (via Mike Singer of USA Today).

That’s probably burger, fries, and nuggets plus a couple of cans of soda if I’m imagining correctly. Now that’s another triple-double for Jokic in my books.

Kidding aside, Jokic most certainly deserves an extra-large meal or two after putting on his hard hat and getting to work in Denver’s first 35 games this season.  The 26-year old has posted supersize numbers for the Nuggets in his sixth season in the Mile High City and has been undoubtedly the team’s most valuable asset.

The Serbian has carried the load for his team with 27.3 points per game, 11 boards, and 8.6 dimes which are all career-high numbers for the big man. His steady play has been key to keep Denver in the running as they comfortably sit at the sixth spot in the West heading to the break.

Jokic’s incredible 2020-21 season has put him way up on the MVP ladder as he currently ranks third behind Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers and LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Let The Joker eat.
