Steve Kerr shares his pick for NBA MVP

Steve Kerr’s Golden State Warriors lost to the Denver Nuggets on Monday night, and that was all Kerr needed to determine his NBA MVP vote.

The Nuggets beat the Warriors 131-124, getting 32 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists from Nikola Jokic. The triple-double was the second in a row for Jokic.

The big game prompted the Kerr to say that Jokic is his pick for NBA MVP.

That’s pretty notable considering one of Kerr’s players, Steph Curry, has also been in consideration for the award. But the betting favorite is Joel Embiid, with Jokic behind him according to most oddsmakers.

Embiid’s case has been supported by many basketball analysts, but the Warriors coach thinks Jokic should win the award for the second straight season.
