Serbian Nikola Jokic has recently hogged a huge portion of the limelight. And it’s not for his on-court feats; rather, because of his brothers. Over the past few days, Nemanja and Strahinja Jokic have gained a lot of attention. Seen in the stands during NBA games, fans have raved about how the powerhouse duo  look like they will destroy anyone in their path. Most recently, the league’s buffs on Twitter warned Miami Heat’s Jimmy Butler about Nikola’s brothers, after the guard-forward had a spat with last year’s MVP.

The Miami Heat have started the season in fine fashion. Spearheaded by Jimmy Butler, the side had conceded only two games, until they ran into the Denver Nuggets on Monday. In a rampant display, Jokic and co. cruised to a 113-96 victory. There is no doubt that both Jokic and Butler do everything in their hands to succeed; and in the process, emotions flare up at times. In a nasty incident during the fourth quarter of the game, the pair engaged in a war of words.

Brothers of Nikola Jokic make Twitter account, threaten Marcus Morris

Late in Q4, the Nuggets had nearly sealed victory. As 3-time All-star Jokic entered opposition territory, 32-year-old Markieff Morris decided to make a rather unnecessary foul on his counterpart. Frustrated with the manner in which he was fouled, the European giant shoved Morris from behind in a devastating manner, flooring him in the process. While his Heat teammates came in support of him on the court, his brother Marcus Morris took to Twitter to back his sibling.

“Waited till bro turned his back smh. NOTED,” said Morris. He indirectly took a shot at Jokic, denoting that it was a cowardly move. Meanwhile, as per a latest report, the Serbian’s brothers have made a Twitter account, and threatened Marcus Morris as well. As confirmed by Mike Singer, the duo has created an account to come in support of their brother, and deal with anyone who is attempting any shenanigans.

Are we really going to see the Jokic brothers vs the Morris brothers? Perhaps Markieff and Marcus can add the fiery Jimmy Butler to even the match-up. Nonetheless, let’s hope what happened on the court stays on the court.
