Is Jokic a cartoon character? NBA superstars have even triumphed in the movies

The mythical “Space Jam” with Michael Jordan and a sea of ​​interesting films within it.

When it comes to basketball players in movies, the legendary Michael Jordan and the equally legendary “Space Jam” Ray Allen, who starred in one of the best sports dramas, “His Game,” immediately come to mind, and for older fans of the National Basketball Association, you may remember Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who starred in the Bruce Lee film “Game of Death” and the comedy “Airplane.”

But indecently silent and far from all the extra-sports commotion, the current NBA champion Nikola Jokic, who plays for the Denver Nuggets, starred in a promotional video for the new part of the cartoon series Despicable Me 4.

The video can be seen on Illumination’s YouTube channel. Video rights belong to NBCUNIVERSAL MEDIA, LLC.

“I thought I looked good that day. I put on a business suit. But they said I looked like Gru. It doesn’t bother me, but they can’t leave me alone. “Guys, I’m not your boss,” Jokic said in the trailer. At the same time, Nikola arrived at the first-round game of the NBA playoffs with the Los Angeles Lakers wearing the scarf worn by Gru, the franchise’s main character, in the cartoon. And overall he looked like Gru. But what could this mean…?

Perhaps Jokic has a cameo in the cartoon, or decided to earn extra money in this way, since lately only the lazy have not heard about the Serbian center. Two-time MVP, Final Series MVP, NBA Champion and many other accolades – it all revolves around the Joker. But before he didn’t care about those things. Maybe he’s just continuing to develop his personal brand, or maybe something in his mindset has changed.

One way or another, let’s remember the NBA stars who appeared on movie screens. Previously we have talked about Michael Jordan, Ray Allen, Kareem Abdul Jabbar and the films with their participation. But did you know that the scandalous Dennis Rodman became an actor even during his professional career? In 1997 he starred in the film Colony with Jean-Claude Van Damme. This was followed by a comedy called “Super Agent Simon”, and in 2000 he participated in the action film “Long Jump.” Rodman was also one of the heroes of the series “The Last Dance”, dedicated to the Chicago Bulls during the team of Jordan, Rodman and Scottie Pippen.

Drama worthy of film adaptation:

Horrors in the family of an NBA champion. Lifetime ban from the league for one brother and prison sentence for the other

Philadelphia 76ers legend Julius Erving starred in the film The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh. By the way, Abdul-Jabbar starred in the same film. Additionally, Doctor Jay was one of the characters in the television series Frasier. Kevin Garnett’s career includes only one film: Uncut Diamonds. Kevin Durant also starred in a movie: “Struck by Thunder.” But the one who has around 40 appearances on screen is the funny Shaquille O’Neal. Diesel starred in films such as Have You Summoned the Genie?, Gambling, and Classmates 2, and also made many appearances in episodic roles in television series and other films.

One of the latest famous basketball players to appear on the big screen is LeBron James. The King played himself in Space Jam 2: The Next Generation. The films also starred John Salley, Wilt Chamberlain, Bo Kimble, Larry Bird and other NBA players. The playoffs for the 2023-2024 season have begun, but this does not prevent Jokic from enjoying participating in the promotion. Let’s continue the league together.
