Denver Nuggets Nikola Jokic had the final say on the Jokic-Morris feud by blaring the Serbian national anthem in a Miami nightclub after the Nov. 29 win.
The heated feud between Nikola Jokic and Markieff Morris began on Nov. 8 after Jokic reacted to Morris with a dirty play. The moment caused Jokic, Morris and a shouting Jimmy Butler to incur fines, resulted in a neck injury for Markieff Morris. It then spun out into a family feud involving the Jokic Brothers and Marcus Morris.
With bad blood engendered between them, Jokic headed to Miami with the Nuggets to take on the Heat for a second time. Once again, the Nuggets came away with a victory, setting back the third-ranked from the No. 2 spot over the Chicago Bulls.
Basking in the glory of victory, Jokic took to the Miami streets to celebrate his win. Apparently, nothing makes the 6-foot-11 Serbian national swell with pride quite like the Serbian national anthem, which had Jokic beaming.
With glow sticks and a lighted sign that read “Nikola Jokic NBA MVP”, a crowd surrounded the reigning MVP as they chanted, “Jokic!”
Flanked by his brothers, Jokic rocked to Chief Keef’s 2012 classic, “I Don’t Like.”

Nikola’s two brothers made it clear they were in attendance at FTX Arena when they made a show of sitting directly behind Denver’s bench.
Another angle of the club video reveals the Jokic brothers banding together and singing the national anthem.
While he was unable to represent the homeland at the Olympics, Jokic was proud to share his national pride with Miami clubgoers as he claimed yet another victory over Markeiff Morris.
And, of course, why wouldn’t he pass on the chance to troll the Heat.
