    The difference between Luka Doncic and Nikola Jokic is clear. Jokic stays healthy! Doncic would be in the NBA MVP Conversation if he could find a way to have his
    body hold up better. Sometimes it's like genetics. Look at Cal Ripken in Baseball. Ironman and I don't see any player ever playing that many consecutive games without
    missing a start. Nikola Jokic is as talented as Doncic. Maybe even more so but he is built like a mack truck. I just wish Jokic had more help around him. The only good thing
    however is that lack of talent around Jokic helps his numbers as he is a Superman of the NBA Stats Wise! :)

    This is a great achievement! A 2nd MVP solidifies his greatness. Now the team just needs to provide a better supporting cast, so he can have a legit shot at a championship.

    Every eligible NBA player who has won 2 MVPs is in the Hall of Fame.

    Some of Jokics' highlights. Among other things he's an incredible passer.

    Is there a better passing big man ever? Maybe Arvydas Sabonis in his prime?

    The basketball media is slagging off Jokic and Nash as bad MVPs, for me the worst players to win MVP in recent years are...
    1. Rose - The very worst; anointed after his first NBA season, people were bamboozled by his dunks.
    2. Iverson - Another anointed after his first NBA season, people were bamboozled by his flashy ball handling, fashion and attitude and rooted for him because of his size.
    3. Kobe - Massively overrated defender, massively underrated teammates.
