Fans troll Nikola Jokic for showing up to Nuggets vs Lakers dressed like a supervillain

Just about everyone is excited for the first round NBA Playoffs series between the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers. A matchup of this magnitude requires everyone to play the part. And Nikola Jokic did not disappoint.

Jokic arrived to the arena for Game 1 dressed as “Gru”, a supervillain from the movie “Despicable Me”. Lakers fans were slightly scared by the look, while everyone else either loved it or hated it.

Why did Nikola Jokic dress like Gru from Despicable Me?
This isn’t just a random occurrence. Jokic actually starred in a trailer for Despicable Me 4, making reference to fans who have likened his appearance to Gru in the past.

Now, Jokic has fully embraced it. And it’s hard to argue against how similar he really looks to the animated character.

While Jokic came dressed as Gru, his opponent, LeBron James, arrived in an all-black outfit.

James means business, as his Lakers look to exact revenge for last season’s Western Conference Finals.
