Jokić: The national team is every player’s dream, a little higher level than everything else


Nikola Jokic

“Every player’s dream is to play for the national team. It’s not pressure, just emotions. Let’s say it’s a slightly higher level than everything else,” said Serbian basketball player Nikola Jokić.

– It’s different when you play for the national team. There is always a little more adrenaline, emotions. The whole country is rooting for you – said Jokić at the press conference ahead of the second match of the NBA Finals between Denver and Miami.

Denver leads the series 1:0 and is three more victories away from the first title in history.

– The motivation is huge, because it has never happened before, so by winning the title, we would leave a significant legacy – said Jokić and added that he would like children to emulate him and have their own life paths.
