Nikola Jokic #15 of the Denver Nuggets celebrates with his daughter Ognjena after a 94-89 victory against the Miami Heat in Game Five of the 2023 NBA Finals to win the NBA Championship at Ball Arena on June 12, 2023 in Denver, Colorado.

Nikola Jokic is now an NBA champion, and by the transitive property, so are his ginormous brothers, Strahinja and Nemanja, and his teeny-tiny daughter Ognjena. He held Ognjena throughout the trophy ceremony, putting his huge victory cap on her tiny head and facilitating a few other silly antics. She's a great sports baby, and I hope this title is her first of many.
