Three reasons why Nikola Jokic will win the NBA’s MVP award this season. 

What started as somewhat of an unprecedented season in the NBA will likely end with many of the same questions that we, as fans, continually ask by the conclusion of the regular season. And one of the biggest debates/arguments that have been at the forefront of fan interaction this season has revolved around who will win the NBA’s MVP award.

With less than 20 games remaining in the NBA’s regular season, there are two clear candidates to win the award. Even though there are many players that deserve recognition, the award will likely come down to Nikola Jokic and Joel Embiid. You can make the argument that Luka Doncic, Giannis Antetokounmpo, or even LeBron James deserve some consideration, but Jokic and Embiid have separated themselves from the rest of the pack over the last few weeks.

I don’t think they would be any gripe, either way, no matter who would win the award between the two, but I believe that there’s one player that is more deserving at this point of the season, and that he’ll ultimately win the award.

We explore three reasons why Nikola Jokic deserves and why he’ll likely win the award this season.
