Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic shows up to the game dressed as “Gru” from “Despicable Me”

DENVER (AP) — Nikola Jokic arrived in top form for a first-round playoff game Saturday night.

This character was “Gru”, the protagonist of the “Despicable Me” films.

Jokic, the two-time NBA MVP for the Denver Nuggets, wore a similar outfit and signature wrap-around striped scarf as “Gru.” It was a success on social networks, with the publication of the Nuggets“Are you going to play basketball or are you going to steal the moon?”

Jokic and the Nuggets opened their title defense against LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers.

The outfit seemed to tease her appearance in a promotion for “Despicable Me 4”, where he seeks therapy because the Minions think he is their boss.

In the trailer, Jokic sits on a couch in a suit while talking with a therapist. He talks about how everyone thinks he looks like “Gru”.

“I thought I looked really good that day. I put on this beautiful suit that said, ‘I don’t talk about business,'” Jokic tells the therapist.

“And then what happened?” She wonders.

“They say I look like ‘Gru,’” Jokic responds.

“Why does this bother you?” she asks.

“That’s not the case,” Jokic insists.

“So why talk about it? she asks.

“Because they don’t leave me alone,” Jokic said.

Jokic then walks over to a window and lifts a blind to reveal a handful of Minions cheering for “Gru” from outside.

“Guys, I’m not your boss,” Jokic says.

Jokic is certainly the boss on the court for the Nuggets, averaging 26.4 points, 12.4 rebounds and nine assists this season. He is the favorite to win a third MVP award, according to BetMGM Sportsbook. He was Finals MVP last season when the Nuggets won their first NBA title in franchise history.
