Nikola Jokic, the Denver Nuggets’ star player, had a crazy night at the Suns game on Sunday. He scored a career-high 53 points, but everyone was talking about an incident where he grabbed a ball from the Suns owner, Mat Ishbia, during a scuffle at courtside. Jokic was trying to get the ball to restart the game quickly, but Ishbia resisted, and the ball ended up in the hands of other fans. When Jokic’s forearm made contact with Ishbia, he fell back dramatically, and Jokic was assessed a technical foul.

Jokic was frustrated after the game, saying that the league was supposed to protect players, and he couldn’t believe he got a technical foul for trying to get the ball from a fan who was trying to influence the game. The Suns won the game, and the series is now tied at two games all.

Despite the incident, Jokic had an incredible game, and Coach Michael Malone was annoyed that Jokic got a technical foul in that situation. Jokic won the Most Valuable Player Award in 2021 and 2022, and the Nuggets are hoping to make it to the NBA finals this year. The next game is on Tuesday night in Denver, and the team and fans are hopeful they can come out on top

I love this guy, he got shoved by Jokic and pretty much said “Run it back” in that tweet. I really don’t think he should be suspended for this. I think it’s fair game to shove an NBA owner, they’re rich anyway. People forget Mat Isiba won a national championship at Michigan State in 2000 and now he is worth 7 billion dollars. He will be fine.
