Why did Nash feel compelled to offer his opinion on NBA MVP? Perhaps he has seen the recent commotion.
NBA analyst/commentator Nick Wright recently declared that Jokic would be the worst MVP in 35 years. His reasoning was pretty terrible, unsurprisingly.
Jokic is averaging 26.4 points, 10.9 rebounds and 8.5 assists per game this season. The Nuggets entered Saturday with the fifth-best winning percentage in the league. Denver has also continued to be successful even with Jamal Murray out, which has strengthened Jokic’s case for the award.
