It’s ‘hard to believe’ Nikola Jokic won’t be NBA MVP again

Gentry: It’s ‘hard to believe’ Jokic won’t be MVP again originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Denver Nuggets’ star Nikola Jokic was the 2020-21 NBA MVP, but is certainly making his case for the award again this season.

The Joker is averaging 25.9, 13.8 rebounds and 8.1 assists per game, and has led the Nuggets to win 10 of their last 11 games.

The Kings battled hard against the reigning MVP and the Nuggets on Wednesday, but their efforts fell short in a 106-100 loss at Golden 1 Center.

And despite a great effort from Sacramento, Jokic was unstoppable. He finished with a game-high 38 points, 18 rebounds and seven assists.

Kings interim coach Alvin Gentry gave his reasoning on why he believes Jokic deserves back-to-back MVP accolades.

He’s one of those guys you can take him and put him on any team and that team is going to be pretty doggone successful.”

The Nuggets’ big man is no doubt playing his best basketball on both ends of the floor.

Just a few days ago, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr presented a similar case for this year’s MVP after the Nuggets’ 131-124 win over Golden State on Monday.

“We played against the reigning MVP, who probably should win it again,” Kerr told reporters after the game. “I don’t have a vote, but Jokic is just an unbelievable player and was spectacular tonight. He makes all of his teammates better. He makes defense so difficult because no matter what you do, he’s got a counter for it. He’s playing the game at such an easy pace and things look so smooth for him out there. With our defense already coming…
