Nikola Jokic dresses as Gru ahead of Game 1

Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic had an interesting outfit ahead of his first game in the 2024 NBA playoffs.

The defending NBA champion arrived at Ball Arena wearing a black and gray striped scarf and gray pants, similar to the outfit worn by Felonius Gru, the main character from the “Despicable Me” film franchise.

Jokic played in one teaser for “Despicable Me 4”, where he seeks therapy because Gru’s followers – the minions – think he is their boss.

Jokic and the No. 2 seed Nuggets face the No. 8 seed Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday.
