During the All-star interview session, Nikola Jokic, the consecutive two times MVP winner of the Nuggets was growing a little punchy. When a reporter asked him if he wants to win the MVP to complete his 3 peat this year, he replied assertively.
The reporter then asked why does he want to get the award again? Jokic then said that he said no to that question the last time they were here. Therefore, he wanted to change things up a little bit.
However, it was evident that Nikola Jokic, the star of Denver Nuggets is least bothered by the fact that he can become the fourth NBA player to get three consecutive MVPs. However, if that happens, he will join the list with legends like Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlin, and Larry Bird.
Nikola Jokic has already won two MVPs in last two seasons despite losing in the second round of playoffs in 2021 and in the first-rounds of it last year against the Warriors.
