‘Worst NBA player of all time’: MVP Nikola Jokic’s ‘Jokic Brothers’ unleash slur against rival Markieff Morris in latest Takedown

Nikola Jokic is most likely to win NBA MVP for the 2021-22 season and will be officially announced this week. This is Jokic’s second consecutive MVP after winning it last year. And it is for the fourth consecutive year that an international player has won this award. Prior to Joker, Giannis won it in 2018-19 and 2019-20.

The Jokic brothers took to Twitter to celebrate the achievement, but they had someone specific in mind.

In a game played in November 2021, between the Denver Nuggets and the Miami Heat, Nikola Jokic was ejected from the game. Notably, the decision came due to harsh retaliation against Markieff Morris, who initially fouled the reigning NBA MVP.

Jokic opposed the hard foul and fought back. Things then heated up and the benches of both teams were cleaned as well. It was also reported that after the game some Miami Heat members were waiting for Jokic in the hallway.

Jovic and Morris had a violent spat during the game between the Nuggets and Heat.

The Jokic brothers took to Twitter to celebrate their brother’s MVP. And it seems they haven’t forgotten about Morris. See some of their tweets sent today below:

Jokic and this season’s journey

Jamal Murray never returned from the ACL injury he suffered last year. And Michael Porter Jr’s season also ended early due to back problems. So, for most of the season, it was Jokic alone who carried the Nuggets on his back. Jokic finished the regular season, averaging 27.1 points, 13.8 rebounds and 7.9 assists on a 58.3%/33.7%/81.0% shooting spread.

He was the only NBA player this season to finish in the top 10 in points, rebounds and assists per game. Jokic also had the highest single-season player efficiency rating in NBA history at 32.85.

His co-stars were injured and the Nuggets couldn’t get past the first round of the playoffs. However, that doesn’t take away from the fact that it was a historic season for Jokic and he is a once-in-a-generation player.
