Opting for a leisurely break following an intense basketball season, NBA Star Nikola Jokic, also known as “The Joker,” has been captured on videos enjoying the Serbian summer, creating what enthusiasts are dubbing the “Summer of Jokic.”
These clips showcase Jokic’s diverse activities, from triumphing in horse racing to inviting his fellow Nuggets teammate, Aaron Gordon, to the racetrack, and even reveling in nighttime festivities at a Sombor club.

The most recent addition to social media displays Jokic dancing spontaneously in the street to live music, ultimately necessitating the involvement of his companions to draw him away.
Interestingly, while NBA star Nikola Jokic indulges in his carefree summer, Team Serbia is actively participating in the FIBA World Cup. In a July declaration, Serbian coach Svetislav Pesic disclosed that Jokic would not be joining the team during this period. This decision aimed to grant Jokic a respite after his involvement in 89 games for the Nuggets, culminating in their triumphant Finals victory.
According to Pesic, “He’s physically and mentally exhausted,” as conveyed to MozzartSport. This statement not only elucidates Jokic’s current liberation but also explains his choice to abstain from further responsibilities at this juncture.
