The Nuggets are surely the top five WC team and that’s majorly because of their big man, Nikola Jokic. Last year, he defeated the likes of Steph Curry, Joel Embiid, and Giannis Antetokounmpo to win the MVP award. As a 41st draft pick, it was a mouth-shutting year from Nikola for his critics.

Nikola Jokic and Natalija Macesic

The Nuggets had a crazy Orlando Bubble outing where they crushed the Clippers to reach the WC finals. But as they lost to the Lakers, Nikola Jokic overcame the setback with personal glory. On October 24th, he married his longtime girlfriend, Natalija Macesic, in a private ceremony. 

Their relationship began in 2013 when Nikola was still in High School. Certainly, the Big Honey is serious with his long-term commitments, be it the Nuggets or his better half. The marriage of these sober love birds took place at a place called Sombor in Serbia. 

Now, apart from being from the same country, the duo shares a knack for privacy. While Nikola Jokic does not have an Insta account (Novak Djokovic’s wife follows his fan page), Natalija likes to choose who can follow her and who can’t. Interestingly, Luka Doncic and his girlfriend are the lucky ones.
