    Much respect to Jokic. No social media, no drama, just a badass basketball player that loves horses and his family.

      Remember this - See how owner and the coach take care of their only value in Nuggets. He is the main value of the club, everything else is changeable and very cheap.Everyone knows that Bones Hyland is more valuable in trade than MPJ. Monté Morris more valuable in trade than Jamal Murray .The owner and coach if they don’t sign with Jokic and go to GSW the rest of the team is worth nothing .If Jokic goes to GSW Club Nuggets on the market it is worth nothing..If you want to be rich and preserve wealth, sometimes you have to ... work like this

      He’s the Tim Duncan of this era

    • huh
      huh

      And as I predicted embiid goes 7/24 and loses in another 2nd round, give Jokic his team and they would be championship contenders

    • huh
      huh

      @L D i never said he is the same level, but he is stepped it up dramatically this year especially as a paint defender he is nowhere near the liability he once was, and like I said his playmaking ability is miles ahead probably the greatest we have ever seen in a center.

      @Miles Hall I know. That bubble was amazing you could hear the players balling and all now we are back to having to deal with rowdy crowds and can't hear anything the players say. Plus that duel between jazz nuggs in the bubble wow... Mitchel Murray going at it was insane. I must be the only person who would prefer bubble style NBA over NBA with crowds. And remember the tvs of the people? I thought that was pretty cool

    It’s really coo to see his coach flew all the way to Serbia across the world to give his player the Award and celebrate how this game continues to grow and get better it’s not all the way there yet there’s still some work to be done but can we all just take in this moment

      Being a hater is a diagnosis, believe me ...!!!!! Don't forget that Serbs write history in many fields ... !! Serbia is the country of Nikola Tesla, Milutin Milanković, Nikola Jokić, Novak Đoković, Filip Filipović, Ivana Španović and lots more of them ... Nation with ingenious World Champions in water polo, volleyball, basketball, athletics ... A small country with about 7 million citizens, much less than a big city like LA or New York ... or London ... but people with the biggest heart and passion for everything they do, in the world !! A Serb is not just a nation ..., being a Serb is a philosophy of life ... Bravo Nikola .., bravo Serbia !!! Your country must be very proud of Y0u .., hats off great, back to back NBA MVP dude !!!

      @James Antony This is correct. None of them American. Also Steve Nash. What is it about non-American NBA players that make them so-team oriented? It is like the American obsession with DIY individualistic "I made it myself" attitude that is not working.

    I remember the moment the nuggets traded away Nurkic and fully backed Jokic as their center for the future, and everyone thought it was dumb to break them up over the "guy who makes cool passes". Back to back MVPs! Glad to see him getting the undeniable respect he deserves

    how great is the nba right now? east and west teams being super competitive, three great big men playing record breaking basketball, along with a hand full of young athletes playing out of their minds. Refs not calling ticky-tack fouls(for the most part) And a two time mvp that is just incredible to watch. Just great basketball to watch for someone who loves basketball 🏀 🙌 👌!!!

    • Ahmad El Alayli

      @Darko exactly! There is no way of telling but the fact that the first thing that came to his mind after reading this was Lebron shows the haters' obsession with this guy 😂

    • Darko
      Darko

      @Ahmad El Alayli He might be right and wrong. LeBron played in the East, and it was never competitive until 2018 where he did reach the NBA Finals. So right and wrong.

    • Flyhr
      Flyhr

      @Rico Timeless LeBron won finals 2 years ago (2020)... and that was a 35 year old LeBron. A prime 2012 version of LeBron would destroy this league... Do you see what Ja Morant is doing to the NBA right now? If they can't stop a high flying 6'3" Ja, how are they gonna stop a 6'9" LeBron? Don't forget Kawhi dismantled this same league (Giannis, Embiid, and Curry in 2019).

      Joker had as many first-place votes as embiid had first and second-place votes combined. I fail to see how that is considered close

      @Shut up Jokic had 27 13.8 and 7.9 Embiid had 30.6 11.7 and 4.2 Giannis had 29.9 11.6 and 5.8 Jokic deserved to win in my opinion but Giannis had nearly identical numbers to Embiid you're speaking BS this was such a tight race

    1:00 Even Joker shows emotions...getting his back to back MVP reward at his home, with the band singing nice,old song... I could only imagine what a party this was after. But he deserved it. He played with his heart, not for personal numbers, but for his team to win. And that is the Most Valuable thing any player can have. And Nikola Jokic has tons of that. BRAVO NIKOLA !

    Funny how so many people across almost every platform feel he didn’t deserve the MVP and practically bashing him. Meanwhile this man is across the world enjoying time with his family and chilling in horse stables caring for animals. None of the negativity and noise is getting to him, he is living his best life. Stay humble Joker

      NBA has been putting millions in international branding as well, so I think this MVP looks more like an international promotional award. Just imagine if Embiid would get the trophy in Africa, imagine the message he would pass to all those talented players down there.

Like Shaq trying to keep the big man alive and him and Embid is great Jokic has just been more available I think but Giannis, Joel, and Jokic all great talents and cool to see the big guy in the paint banging lol seems like a great young man. ✌️💙

      Europeans basketball fans know how good Boris Diaw was. He's just not a big deal in the US 🤷🏾‍♂️

      @slickeddy2000 How when Boris Diaw was a better offensive talent than Dray but Green as the edge in terms of defense

      Boris Diaw is like Draymond Green you gotta put him in a situation with High IQ basketball players or Talent or he can’t be utilized properly.

    I love how humble these international players are like Dirk, Luka, Duncan, Manu, and Jokic. They just show their game, unlike those players who kept asking for a show of respect. Edit: also Yao Ming (as pointed out by Ken123268) very humble and a great ambassador for basketball in Asia

    It's refreshing seeing a down to earth and humble guy, that appears to live a "normal" life (away from his career) with no desire to be spending or splashing out on expensive and materialistic things (like chains and super cars etc)... Who also just happens to be a now 2 time back-to-back MVP of the NBA... 😄

    Congratulations Nikola! I know you tune out the (uglier than it need be) noise that we’re inundated by here, if we want to continue to follow you, your team, and appreciate the steps along the way. Thank you for continuing to keep your spirit and allow it to shine through truly, as you’ve continued to better your craft and handle increased challenge so impressively. And for those of us who are witnessing and understanding the noise we have to filter through to share in the joy of your performances and success just a little, we should take solace in knowing real merit can be rewarded in spite of that kind of noise. Great interview Ernie. This was fun.

    Extremely well deserved, anybody who says otherwise has no knowledge of basketball at all, he led g league players to the play offs and a 6th seed which they had absolutely no right being in, he had the highest efficiency rating in nba history, higher than even wilt when he was averaging 50, he was also the first player in nba history to have 2k points, 1k rebounds, 500 assists and over, he also had a higher box score and plus/minus than giannis and embiid signifying that he was much more valuable to his team than giannis and embiid, the only thing embiid had going for him was that he was the top scorer, he led in no other category, and to further show how much Jokic played better than embiid, if Jokic had harden, harrris, maxey and danny green we all know he'd have done much better considering he was able to make the playoffs as the 6th seed with g league players and was only 3 games behind embiid, it's literal madness to say anybody deserved it more than Jokic

      So what? The MVP shouldn’t be given for just stats…Westbrook shouldn’t have won it either for his triple double shenanigans…empty calories. I’ve been watching basketball for over 40 years and I’ve seen many players have better seasons than this unprecedented one! Only one stat matters how much did you win?!
