Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic became a fan favorite because of his awkward antics throughout the NBA playoffs. His desire to go home — much like the everyman — was something that many found to be relatable.

This week, Jokic was all over the internet once again, when a video of him dancing at what looks like a nightclub surfaced online.

The big man was seen enjoying himself with many others, the only difference was that he was about double the size of just about everyone who was there with him. He’s so much taller than the rest of the people shown in the clip, that it literally looks like he’s standing on a table — which he might be, who knows?

But, at the very least the clip serves as a reminder that NBA players are extremely tall. At six-foot-eleven, Jokic doesn’t even crack the top 10 tallest players in the league.

He definitely isn’t within the top 10 for the league’s best dancers either. The Joker’s moves are no better than yours or mine, as he awkwardly bounces around to the beat.

Make no mistake — he still rules.

Denver Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic has had himself a summer

After helping the Denver Nuggets capture their first-ever NBA title, Jokic has gotten to relax, go home, and even spend some time with his beloved horses.

It seems to have been a much-needed break from basketball, as the big man could only think about going home after capturing the Larry O’Brien trophy.

He wasn’t even interested in the Nuggets’ championship parade and was disappointed to learn that he’d have to wait another three days before returning to Serbia.

He did, however, end up enjoying the celebration, even telling fans that he was happy that he stuck around for the event.

Hopefully, after a summer away from the game, Jokic is ready to come back, dominate again, and help Denver work towards repeating as NBA champions.
