Nikola Jokic made some interesting comments regarding the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers.
The superstar of the Denver Nuggets said he does not care about how good the Lakers and the Clippers will be.
Jokic also addressed the lack of respect the Nuggets received after eliminating the Clippers in the 2020 NBA playoffs.
“To be honest I don’t care about the Lakers. They will be good obviously. Even now they are talking about how the Clippers lost, not how we won.
Just because someone doesn’t give us respect doesn’t mean we listen to their opinions. We know how good we are,” Jokic told reporters, via T.J. McBride of Blue Wire podcast.
Last season, the Nuggets made the Western Conference Finals for the first time since 2009.
