    That's the right move for the big guy. Probably on a plane to Serbia later this afternoon.
    And found his misplaced Finals MVP trophy.

    And his daughter was the belle of the ball.

    Maybe Im projecting but my boss, whos probably pulling 7 figures, had a conversation with me recently asking me about my professional ambitions because I know he wants me to take on more responsibility.

    I told him my kids are my North Star and Ill only do so much work up until and when it infringes upon my ability to be a father.

    He seemed a little taken aback but then said, I wish Id done the same.

    My wifes dad, a business creator, and now in late stage cancer told me over beers his biggest regret was not spending more time with his girls while they were growing up.

    Again, probably projecting my family values on the thread but I appreciate Jokic just wanting to spend time with his family when everyone else in the world wants something more from him, even though he just bulldozed postseason records and won the championship.

    Good for you. I agree with you.

    How many people on their deathbed say "I wish I would have spent more time at the office"?

    Must have been a BIG thrill for his daughter... and he probably realized it too. What kid wouldn't be excited to ride a fire engine. I know that was one of my big thrills when I was in elementary school... but that was MANY MANY years ago.

    Really??

    Nikola Jokić was the main attraction at a triumphant championship celebration parade attended by hundreds of thousands of adoring fans. And he was with his little girl. Its not like hes just some guy sitting at his desk in a cubicle for yet another boring day at work.

    Maybe a little bit of context would be helpful next time.

    It's interesting how you can officially define the start and the end of the 2023 NBA Playoffs by a pair of daughters.

    I was responding to Bundabeg's post which I agree with.

    Perhaps my post didn't give enough context. Upstream I said that the Joker did the right thing by participating in the parade with his daughter.

    I may not have given a lot of context and don't care to. No big deal. I'm glad that Jokic appeared with his daughter.

    No problem. I probably wasn't clear enough that I was commenting on Bundaberg's message to his boss, not talking about Joker. I probably changed lanes without signalling my intention.

    Did more than attend. He said he was glad he stayed and that the memory will stay with him for the rest of his life. And he really praised the thousands of fans who showed up.

    Sounds like Nikola had a grand time. I had a feeling he would. Im happy for him; he deserves it.

    Now its time to ride horses in Serbia! Ill bet theyre not too happy, though. The horses are wishing hed chosen to stay in Denver for the summer! 😥

    One of the great joys of being a sports fan is watching people like this grow into superstardom. When they show a bit of relatable emotion, all the better.

    I feel his emotion of wanting to go home, AND his emotion of enjoying the parade were both honest and relatable.

    Yes, I love Jokic, he seems to wear his heart on his sleeve. Its that thing when you really dont want to do some thing you are committed to, but then you do it, and it turns out to be awesome.

    I have had some work events like that. Unfortunately no parade, though.
