Nikola Jokic received congratulations for becoming the NBA MVP from his compatriot and tennis star Novak Djokovic who recorded a short video.

“MVP, MVP!” Djokovic began the video on a tennis court while wearing Jokic’s Nuggets jersey. “This is for my friend Nikola Jokic, the Joker. Congratulations for your MVP. Well deserved. Sending you big regards from Paris, Roland Garros. I’m carrying you today with me on the practice. Hopefully, bringing you luck in the playoffs. All the best my friend.”

Jokic and the Nuggets find themselves in a difficult position after losing the first two games of the second round series against the Phoenix Suns.
