Nikola Jokic is considered to be the favorite to win the MVP this season which would be his third straight. His teammates get asked constantly about the Serbian superstar winning the prestigious award.
Nuggets’ forward Vlatko Cancar, who was a guest on DNVR Nuggets Podcast, says he is tired of the media constantly asking questions about whether Jokic deserves to be the MVP this season and similar things.
Via R.P. Salao of ClutchPoints:
“Everytime you have an interview it’s like ‘Oh what do you think about Nikola winning the MVP?’ And all the stuff they say about him, it’s like guys can you please just shut the f**k up just for one second. Why are we talking about this, he’s already won two of them. I wish he wins 10 more, but I don’t think he needs to hear about this anymore. I don’t think he ever wanted to hear about it.”
This season Jokic is averaging 24.4 points, 11.8 rebounds and 10 assists in 33.6 minutes per game as the Nuggets sit atop the Western Conference with 46 wins and 20 losses.
