    Here are his stats for the season and as you can see Nikola Jokic averaged almost a triple double for the season. What a great basketball player he is. He is alot like a bigger
    version of Larry Bird as he sees the whole floor.

    Well deserved. Joins Steve Nash (x2), Dirk, and Larry Bird (x3); 7 White MVPs in the past 35 years. I expect Luka to get at least 2 MVPs over the next few years.

    Congratulations to Jokic. He is the complete player.
    My observation is that the best players from the former Yugoslavia( population 23 million) would beat the best players from black America( population 47 million). It would be a great caste matchup. With Doncic and others they would win a seven game series 4-1/4-2.

    I feel so bad for Nikola Jokic. He is not getting any help in the 2nd round of the playoffs. How did Jokic do tonight you ask?

    Nikola Jokic had 32 points, 20 rebounds, 10 assists and 1 block. He is getting no help. The guy is the MVP but he has very little support
    and this is unfortunate. What a game and what a playoffs he has had. This guy is a legend!

    Jokic was ejected in last night's game for a flagrant 2 foul. The call was borderline at best, never would have been called on King James in a million years.

    You took the the words right out of my mouth. This was so unfair. At least Lebron James and the Lakers were knocked out in the first round of the playoffs.


    Even with the Nuggets not making the NBA Finals, they still have made the playoffs several years in a row. Jokic won the NBA MVP by a overwhelming vote. They need to get more shooters around him to
    help this team advance further. Nikola was the most dominant player in the regular season and in the NBA Playoffs but he can't do it all himself. Congrats to Jokic on an amazing year!

    Larry Bird still the last White American to win the award. 34 years ago.

    Great News!!! I do not watch the NBA any longer nor do I watch BSPN online or on TV. This came as a great surprise. I watched his hi-lights on YouTube. He reminds me of a bigger Larry Bird and his athletism is off the charts.
