The NBA shortened the roster and announced three finalists as the “League’s Most Valuable Player”.
These people are Denver’s Nikola Jokić, Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid (Joel Embiid) and Golden State’s Stephen Curry (Stephen Curry).
Experts agree that the MVP battle between the first two will be very fierce. Jokic averaged 26.4 points, 10.8 rebounds and 8.3 assists per game in the regular season, while Embiid averaged 28.5 points, 10.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.4 blocks per game.
If Jokic becomes the MVP, he will be the first Denver player in history to do so. Since Iverson in 2001, Embiid (Embiid) will be the first 76ers to receive this title. Curry will win his third MVP title.
However, so far, some reporters have made voices, indicating that Jokic is the first person he likes. Traditionally, the MVP is elected by 100 journalists. They chose him so that each reporter would list five basketball players. The first place scored 10 points, the second place scored 7 points, the third place scored 5 points, the fourth place scored 3 points, and the fifth place scored 1 point. .
So far, 35 voters (more than one-third of them) have revealed who they voted, and Jokić ranks first among all voters.
If this situation continues, Jokic will become the third player in history to be unanimously nominated for the most valuable player of the regular season.
