Sports fans think that their favorite sports stars care as much as they do about everything. They think they eat, sleep, and breathe football, basketball, or whatever they do. Maybe they believe that the athletes value their image or connection with supporters. But the reality is that many elite athletes, like Denver Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic, don’t care.
Today we’ll look at some of the most famous athletes who don’t care about the things that fans might think are important. It’s fascinating and even infuriating to some fans to see them throw away opportunities. However, sometimes we might agree with their perspectives about money or fame. With the Nuggets recently winning the NBA title, Jokic is the current figurehead of this school of thought. Check out Jokic and the athletes who just don’t care what people think right here.
Including Jokic on a list of athletes who don’t care may seem ridiculous. After all, Jokic is one of the most impressive stars of the modern NBA era, now possessing a championship ring and multiple MVPs. But Jokic honestly doesn’t care about fame or celebrity lifestyles. Jokic simply wants to play basketball and collect his check (via Fox News).
The response Jokic gave to winning his first NBA Finals with the Nuggets was golden. A reporter asked Jokic if he was excited about the parade, but Jokic shook his head and said he wanted to go home. It’s typical behavior from Jokic, whose play makes him the center of attention. But his personality proves that Jokic simply wants people to leave him alone. With Jokic currently one of the biggest stars in basketball, that’s a somewhat difficult position for the NBA. However, Jokic wants what he wants, and that’s a more simple life than most pro sports stars. At the end of the day, Jokic has earned the right to do what he wants.
