    Being able to celebrate winning the MVP in his home country, doing his favorite hobby, and being around his family and friends is top tier.

      I knew it but i was sad nuggets disqualify on playoffs, he should get mvp final too

      @Rimimimimimimimim ケ i am just going of his word. "Being a celebrity isnt really fun. I would rather have no one know me than everybody know me."

    • Rimimimimimimimim ケ
      Rimimimimimimimim ケ

      @Moldveien I mean I don’t think he is to a point where he wouldn’t be happy about it, but he clearly doesn’t try to push himself into more fame or put himself in the spotlight even if it leaves a bad reputation to try and gain fame. He doesn’t act like he is more important then others as a basketball superstar (thinking of KD, Kyrie) which I really like and like Giannis he is just a really cool guy so I think it’s better for him anyway to stay away from Twitter, a lot of NBA players like to post on Twitter and get media attention, cause a debate on something (could be NBA rules) or start beef

      @Rimimimimimimimim ケ he doesnt even have a twitter, or any social media, he quite openly says he has no interest in being famous

      @Kobe Bean better seed argument can't be made for any of top 3 because both Sixers and Bucks have same record and Denver only 3 wins less, You can't say Giannis can carry more than Jokic when he was able to get 48 wins despite not having 2 next best players after him on team, maybe you mean in playoffs Giannis can carry more but MVP is a regular season award, this years MVP voting had decided winner based off stats and narrative which go slightly to Jokic's favor.

    • Kobe Bean
      Kobe Bean

      @Luka Cyrex what I can’t have an opinion? I ain’t mad. Im not a Giannis fan but I just think he deserves it. His team has a better record and his numbers in terms of PPG are better than Jokic. And he can carry a team more than Jokic. I’m not a fan of or bucks. But I give credit where credit is due.

      @Kobe Bean why are you so salty about MVP award

    • Kobe Bean
      Kobe Bean

      @Fantomas646 and jokic is at home watching Giannis play. Better regular season record than jokic. Average more points than jokic. And he also beat jokic in the regular season. They split 1-1. You going off of feelings I’m going off of stats. Bozo

    Ladies and gentlemen, the most humble and low maintenance MVP of all time. Denver struck gold “no pun intended”and although I am a die hard Miami Heat fan I sure hope they build something worthy around this man because he deserves it, cause he ain’t leaving you.

    • D Human

      Amen. The Nick Wrights & Steven A’s of the media world, who dominate the noise that displaces what should be appreciation for this man and what he does, either don’t get that… or they do. Sure, it wasn’t presented before a game or practice (like when it was announced to Nikola last year by the way), but enough about them and that noise. This was absolutely beautiful. A fitting presentation. A wonderful interview by Ernie of TNT too. Great insight in Nikola, and what he actually thinks of his 2020 and on team. Who obviously thinks the world of him. For obvious reasons, in addition to those you just mentioned.

    That's just awesome. Great to see 3 international stars from humble beginnings all fighting for the MVP this year. All were worthy and Jokic won it. NBA is really a global game

      @A N That's a great way of looking at it. But Rafa/Nole/Fed... could also be MJ/KB/LBJ as well. Both analogies work in my opinion.

    Jokic is most complete player in NBA. He carried Nuggets by himself to playoff, producing monster stats. I love how humble he is and appreciate his roots.

      Denver needs a strong perimeter defender in order to have a realistic chance; someone like Holiday, Crowder, Smart or even PJ Tucker. They would have to give up MPJ going forward to accomplish this. They need someone to not only anchor their defense but to revitalize their defensive mentality.

    Nikola Jokic is the embodiment of moral qualities and inner beauty that a person can offer to the world. He is a man who is impossible not to like. For him, modesty is strength, and arrogance is a weakness. There are not many left like him in this world, but his presence gives us hope for the future of the human kind.

    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 MVP dude !!!

      @Bruno Croatian from Lika?? Do you know history?? His origin is Serb and whole world know that!! Tesla's father was pure100% Ortodox Christian prist, do you know that, his mother was Serbian woman. Tesla even refused USA citizenship, do you know that ?! Simple, you know nothing kid !! The museum of Nikola Tesla is in Belgrade in Serbia. The urn with Tesla's ashes is located in Belgrade, Serbia ... and why, because he is a Croat ?? All Tesla memorials are in the same museum, go and see, hear some smart people say, look at some records !! Do you know that Tesla's closest relatives were slaughtered by Ustasha Croats ... do you know that !! ?? Why?? Because he was a Croat !! ?? It's not a shame not to know, it's a shame not to read and bang nonsense !! Books are a treasure, sit and read !!
