The Denver Nuggets’ star center keeps achieving milestones in his young career and is showing zero signs of stopping anytime soon.
He is a not only a scoring machine, but he is one of the best rebounders in the league today, and on Sunday night, he proved why he deserves to be the MVP of the league when the season is over.
Jokic recorded a 46/12/11/3/4 game and is now the only player in NBA history to have recorded a 40/10/10/3/3 game, adding more incentive for him to be crowned the MVP this year.

Jokic Deserves To Be The MVP
Jokic is often overlooked, falling into the shadow of Joel Embiid.
Overlooking the “Cookie Monster” as he is often referred to, is a huge mistake.
The 26-year-old center from Serbia continues to show why he is no joke and is more than capable of carrying a team.
It’s hard to overlook his MVP case when he is the first player to have ever recorded a 40/10/10/3/3 game in his career, especially when he exceeded some of those numbers in last night’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans.
Jokic is an absolute beast, and he continues to impress in his young career.
At only 26, he is already putting up Hall-of-Fame numbers.
This year, he is averaging 25.8 points per game and 13.8 rebounds per game.
He is clearly a player who can do it all on the court, which is sometimes rare for a big man, especially someone his size.
But Jokic continues to silence the critics and prove that he is more than deserving of winning the MVP award this year.
