Nuggets melt over Jokic

Nikola Jokic may win the 2022/23 NBA MVP, but the Denver Nuggets roster is certain the award already has an owner

Nikola Jokic didn’t give chances to Suns and made history for Nuggets last Monday, 1. Candidate to be elected the MVP of the NBA in this 2022/23 season, the Denver star doesn’t seem to be very attached to that label. After the 97-87 victory against phoenixthe player was asked about the possibility of winning the award for the third time in his career, but he seemed to be more concerned with relaxing in the pool.

I mean, I can’t think of (the MVP), my friend. I can’t control it. Hope it’s a sunny day so I can be by the pool“, he stated.

Jokic’s statement came after a gala display by the player during the Suns-Nuggets game. At the opportunity, Nikola had 39 points, grabbed 16 rebounds and still had five assists. Those numbers were enough for Michael Malone to make a series of compliments for his main player.

I marvel at its greatness. I marvel at his consistency, his excellence, his ability to find so many different ways to win, whether it’s scoring, hitting, creating plays, without fear of the moment.”he vented to journalists.

In addition, the coach of the Nuggets made it clear that the main objective of Jokic and the rest of the roster is not the award for MVP of the season in the NBA: “There are so many quality (MVP) contenders and it will be a very close race. But I know that what motivates Nikola Jokic, what motivates me and the rest of the guys in that locker room, is not the MVP. It’s our journey to try and win the first championship in franchise history.“.

Murray also commented on Jokic’s great performance in the match against the Suns and elected his teammate as the main name of the season in the NBA. Nikola’s partner praised the scorer’s numbers from the last match against the Suns and warned that the 2022/23 season already has an MVP. It is important to remember that the athlete from Denver has Embiid and Antetokounmpo as rivals in the dispute for the individual award.

I mean, 39 points, 16 rebounds and five assists, while everyone else was fighting… Man, no hesitation on his part. Just dominating. Staying aggressive throughout the game, cheering us on during the breaks, just fully believing in us the whole time while he was taking full responsibility.”followed.

Tonight was a perfect example of an MVP, who could potentially be elected a third time“, finished.
