Last year’s MVP is having a terrific season, averaging a ridiculous 26 points, 13.8 rebounds, and 7.9 assists a game.
The Joker is helping his team stay alive in a tough season and there is a chance they could go far in the postseason.
But that doesn’t mean Jokic doesn’t still face some challenges – including during Sunday’s All-Star Game.

When asked on if it’s hard to play in the big game, Jokic said it is.
“For me, it is actually,” Jokic told the press. “I don’t know what to do.”
The stats he put up on Sunday night suggest Jokic might not be entirely right about that because he definitely knew what to do.
It’s no secret that some players don’t take the All-Star Game too seriously.
The game is a way to have a lot of fun, raise money for charity, and play alongside the other best guys in the league.
Jokic was definitely putting up some impressive numbers during the game.
He ended with 10 points, 9 rebounds, and 8 assists.
That means that in a game filled with so many big names vying for the ball, Jokic came this close to getting a triple-double.
So no matter what Jokic says, he definitely knew what he was doing – just like he knows what he’s doing every single night with his Nuggets.
There is no doubt that Jokic is a premium, top-of-the-line player but now the question is will that be enough to carry his team far into the playoffs?
To make that happen, Jokic can’t be the only one playing like an All-Star.
