Where was Nikola Jokic drafted?

The Denver Nuggets drafted Nikola Jokic with the 41st overall pick in the second round of the 2014 NBA Draft.

Jokic's NBA draft night in 2014 holds a humorous charm for NBA enthusiasts because his selection was overshadowed by a commercial break. When the number 41 selection for the Denver Nuggets was on the clock as they were about to make their selection, 2014 NBA draft broadcasters ESPN switched to a commercial break, and a Taco Bell advertisement was aired. Exactly at this moment, Jokic was drafted! So, the selection of Jokic with the 41st pick was deemed so unimportant back then but he ended up being the superstar, a future 2 time NBA MVP, and a Finals MVP.
