Nikola Jokic Is Truly Living His Best Life While Continuing To Celebrate Winning The Duzijanca Horse Race

It was just two days ago that we got an update on how the Summer Of Jokic was going, and we learned that the good times were still rolling after Jokic's horse won a big race

Look, when you're hot you're hot and Jokic is clearly on an all time heater ever since we got to the Spring. If it looked like he was happier winning that trophy than the Larry O'Brien trophy, it's probably because he was. We all know Jokic cares way more about his horses than anything NBA related. One is a passion, the other is a job. 

So it makes complete sense that when it came to celebrating this trophy, Jokic would take things up a few levels compared to what we saw at the Nuggets parade. For Jokic, that means popping the top off, grabbing the mic, and becoming an international music sensation.

I don't care if you think this is getting played out. I simply can't get enough of Champion Jokic. This is certainly not the first time we've seen Jokic go shirtless, how could we forget the time back in 2019 when he hit the club out in Serbia

That came off what was at the time one of the best seasons in Nuggets history with Jokic making All NBA. Now here we are 4 years later after what was legitimately the greatest season in Nuggets history with Jokic cementing himself as an all time great. Add in his horse winning and of course that shirt was coming off during the celebrations. It never stood a chance.

I think what I love so much about these clips is how genuine they all are. You don't get the sense that Jokic is doing this to go viral or anything like that. This is just who he is. There's something funny about this giant 7ft dude partying his face off and living his best life without a care in the world. Not to mention the fact that he seems a whole lot more relatable to us normal folks because chances are your body type is closer to Jokic than say….LeBron or some other physical specimen in the league. The only difference of course is Jokic can do shit like this

and you and I cannot. Remember, this is the best basketball player on earth right now and you'd never know it by looking at him.

With Jokic deciding to skip the FIBA World Cup in order to rest (a good decision imo), I have a feeling we're going to be getting a whole lot more of these types of videos for the rest of the summer. Especially if his horses keep winning. I say don't worry about him coming into camp out of shape or anything like that because history has shown Jokic is fairly dominant no matter how he looks.

Plus, coming off a title the Nuggets are playing with house money anyways next season, so I say go nuts.
