The Denver Nuggets do-everything center Nikola Jokic was one assist short of a triple-double when Denver defeated the Chicago Bulls 108-107 in OT last week
But he was still very impressed with the Bulls rookie center Wendell Carter Jr., who similarly stuffed the stat sheet.
"No homo, he's longer than you expect," the Joker told reports after the game.
While some might see Jokic's words as a young Serbian slowly learning American lingo, the NBA sees it as homophobia and has fined him 25K.
Jokic finally got dinged for his post-game comment in which he sai (paraphrasing) "no homo, but Wendell Carter Jr is a lot longer than I thought." pic.twitter.com/J7VREKXnt6— Andrew Joe Potter (@AndrewJoePotter) November 7, 2018
Is no homo anti-gay?
