Novak Djokovic makes NBA stars look bad with an easy 3-pointer at the Lakers' home.
The Los Angeles Lakers play the Golden State Warriors.

During a break from tennis, Novak Djokovic showed off his basketball skills. Not long ago, the World No. 1 was shocked to lose early at the Indian Wells Open. On Sunday, he went to the Crypto.com Arena to watch the Los Angeles Lakers play the Golden State Warriors.

Before getting to watch a game between two of the league’s most popular teams, the 36-year-old got to play basketball himself. The tennis player Djokovic posted a video to Instagram of himself practicing his best Stephen Curry impression while making a 3-point shot.

The Serbian put a message on his shot that called out NBA legend LeBron James: “Not too bad ha? @kingjames.” When asked what he thought of what he saw, the Lakers star replied, “Hahahaha!!!!” Not bad at all, friend!! True to form.”

He also wrote on Instagram, “Amazing to witness greatness on and off the court.” The 24-time Grand Slam tennis champion posted these pictures.The play of King LeBron and Steph last night was amazing.

On Sunday night, Djokovic met with LeBron James and Steph Curry.

Great to see that they are still going strong at their age. Both of these stars and all-time greats deserve the best of luck. Thank you, @lakers, for being so nice last night and a few weeks ago. I can’t wait to be back for more NBA action!”

Along with James, Djokovic played Curry on the same night. Curry got 31 points as the Warriors beat the Celtics 128–121. After saying hello to each other on the court, the current French and US Open champion gave the previous league MVP a signed racket.

He did, however, give Djokovic the shirt he wore in the game and have him sign it. The photos were shared by the ATP Tour with the caption “Just two stars hanging out.” The night out in LA happened only two weeks after Djokovic spent time with Nikola Jokic, who is from Serbia and is the current NBA winner.

Djokovic was supposed to play in the Miami Open, which comes right after the first Masters 1000 event of the year. However, he lost in the third round to 123rd-ranked Italian Luka Nardi.

But before the end of Indian Wells, the famous tennis player said he was pulling out of Miami. He will now focus on the clay court season in Europe.

“At this point in my career, I’m juggling my personal and work life,” Djokovic wrote on X. “I’m sorry that I won’t experience some of the best and most passionate fans in the world.”
