Six-time PBA MVP June Mar Fajardo shared a huge moment between him and Denver Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic during Gilas Pilipinas’ game against Serbia in the 2019 Fiba World Cup in China.

Fast forward to 2021, Jokic just won his first-ever MVP award, and “The Krakken” couldn’t be more prouder for his idol.

“Congrats to one of my idols Nikola “The Joker” Jokić for bagging the NBA MVP this season!” Fajardo wrote on his AHOSGaming Facebook page.

Jokic became the lowest draft pick ever to win the individual plum, as he was picked 41st in the 2014 NBA Draft.

Fajardo also shared his autographed KD 12s from Jokic, which has his nickname “The Joker” written on his kicks.

It’s obvious that the autographed KD 12s is the San Miguel star’s prized possession.

“Had this pair of shoes customized just to wear against you in the PH-Serbia FIBA game. Thank you for signing them! Appreciate it. Bounce back next game!” Fajardo said, pertaining to the Nuggets being down 0-2 against the Phoenix Suns in 2nd round of the playoffs.
