This week was a whirlwind in Denver Nuggets basketball. We went from having no Nikola Jokic due to a hip flexor strain to him returning on Friday night against the Milwaukee Bucks and recording his first ever career triple-double.
Nikola being Nikola, he was humble as ever about his major accomplishment but his teammates were not shy at showing how proud they were of the gentle giant from Serbia.
Kenneth Faried was quite possibly the most excited out of his teammates when Nikola recorded his triple double.
Rookie Juancho Hernangomez was very excited as well…
Darrell Arthur was also quick to give his congratulations to Nikola Jokic.
Last but not least, Will the Thrill Barton was also offering his congratulations to the second year center:
The elusive Wilson Chandler was also very quick to take to his twitter account to offer his congratulations:
Congrats to my guy on the first of many triple doubles @NJokic15

Regardless of his success, we’ve continued to see The Joker remain as humble as ever.

We all know that this triple-double was the first of many and we at Dig in Denver, along with all of Nuggets Nation, are excited to see where Nikola Jokic goes from here.
