  • Wow Joel was running for MVP and defensive player of the year and he didn't win none.

  • So gianis is not center?

    • Nope...PF

  • First second round pick to win an mvp

  • He just raised his price, so Denver Broncos now have to pitch in more for a new QB.

  • Gotta love the guy. Well deserved. Congrats Joker

  • I want to see Jokic and Doncic play together one season at least

  • 2021 Arvydas Sabonis

  • Hell Yea!!!💯

  • Most fun players to watch: Luka Doncic, Steph Curry, and THE JOKER. No contest for anyone else.

  • I am a true die hard Warrior and Stephen Curry fanatic but there's no doubt Nikola 100% deserves this MVP 🏆 all of the haters and casuals can kick rocks

  • jokic reminds me of Kevin love when he was with the timberwolves

  • Fake as hell votes

  • To Srbineee

  • 1:47 How could he see millsap was under the basket. His eyes didnt look toward Millsap at all. Very2 genius

  • If only Luka and him were in the same team

  • He was definitely a unit this season

  • He's not the Joker that the Nuggets deserve right now, but the one it needs.

  • Well deserved, Jokic. 🃏 Such an unselfish player. Denver should retire his number when he retires. First Nugget to ever win an MVP and the lowest draft pick to get it. 💯👏👏👏

  • MVP!!

  • El Quesorito

  • ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE 🇷🇸 the lowest drafted player to win MVP 🏀

  • 🇷🇸🇷🇸🇷🇸

  • I’m a fan of Curry, but clearly Jokić should be named the 2021 mvp undoubtedly. He was the better all around player this season and it shouldn’t even be a discussion. Congrats, Joker!!! Well deserved 👏

  • Jokara 💪💪💪🇷🇸❤️❤️❤️

  • It's the first time in history that the NBA MVP and the Euroleague MVP come from the same country! They even come from the same club. DOMINATION 🇷🇸🇷🇸🇷🇸

  • JOKER

  • Very well deserved

  • 8:38 even for an international player, that's one helluva travel

    • @no one that angle and the player cutting in front of the camera make it difficult to see that dribble, you're right though

    • @prof.krastavac lee good catch, alright I concede

    • At 8:40 there was a bounce at the front of the left foot of Jokic before he raised the ball with both hands.

    • Watch again at .25x speed. There was a dribble in the paint.

    • And if you look close he has one more dribble in the paint before two steps, i didn't see it at first as well.

  • 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  • Keep this in mind. 17th in field goal percentage - and he barely dunks the ball. Also, 5th in points per game and he barely gets to the foul line. This dude is special. We are lucky to see a guy like this play the game.

  • The guy deserved it, But if the warriors managed to get in the playoffs then curry would've got it

  • Needcola Jokic MVP!!

  • Lamelo should've won lmao what a joke

  • Whoever put rudy gobum as top 5 mvp should be banned

  • My luka mvp s***

  • The dude is a amazing player , hes a great guy and a good role model for kids .MVP and the way he's going possibly going to be with the GOATS.

  • Anyone notice no black NBA players are showing respect to Jokic for winning MVP?

    • WHAT?? SMH. Obviously you haven't been watching or listening to anything anywhere.

  • Why so serious?? Congrats Joker!

  • Would go down easily as the best international player of all time.

  • Congrats MVP!!!

  • NBA did RIGHT with this MVP! I'll take the Joker over Embiid ALLLL DAYYYY!

  • Why Is Aaron Gordon now wearing Jordan?

  • Well deserved!!!

  • Long as a Caucasian could fight his way into the conversation he shall when the award every time for International appeal and revenue proposes. Look how they let Dirk and nash steal the MVP. from kobe 3yrs in a role after kobe have 12 straight games of scoring 40+ point. Had a 82 point game and won the scoring title and championship 2-3yrs in that span. Welp Most of NBA consumers and ticket holders are Caucasian. They intrinsic bias gotta be fed.

    • @Malik Brown The playoffs have zero to do with the regular-season MVP. Anybody with a pulse knows Phoenix is a much better, deeper, and healthier team. Murray being out for the season basically killed Denver's chances of getting past the second round. That doesn't change the my opinion thatJokic was easily the regular-season MVP, and that it was well earned. I doubt it will change the opinion of any of the MVP voters as well.

    • @Malik Brown in their countries Race is irrelevant.

    • Yall saying they're foreigners like they not Caucasians? lmao. Where did I lose yall at? My statement is clear.

    • Chris Paul was more deserving that's why he making his business to sweep Jokic and the nuggets right out the playoffs lol.

    • That's just a ridiculous and racist take. There is not intrinsic bias whatsoever in the MVP voting. I guess you weren't paying attention when a whole slew of black NBA and sports commentators supported Jokic for MVP. Just because Nash might not have deserved those MVPs doesn't mean you should hold it against every white candidate who gets into the MVP conversation. That's just ignorant. If you don't like Jokic winning MVP, then make a logical basketball case for someone else instead of spouting this garbage.

  • Giannis is technically a center but yeah

    • @LeCuqy He really doesn't have the play style of a center. He routinely starts his attack from outside the paint and takes people off the bounce. His style is more of a slashing forward who happens to be much taller.

    • Relax I was just saying he has the play style/ height as a center

    • Giannis is a small forward/power forward

    • No he’s not he’s a power forward lmao

  • The sophisticated capricorn additonally disagree because alarm assembly deserve circa a modern mass. nutritious, tightfisted paint

  • Big Jok!!! The city proud of you loco 😤🃏

  • STEPH CURRY WHO?

  • Well deserved 👏🏽

  • This is highly deserved!

  • I love his game.

  • Giannis should've learn the skyhook then win 10 rings

  • Truly inspiring Jokic couldn’t even do a push-up and now he is the mvp of the league as a second rounder. In the words of kg “anything is possibleeeee”

    • inspirational weight loss

  • 12:23

  • Jokic is the MVP and he deserves it people saying curry should have realize that he didn't make the playoffs and embid wasn't healthy all season so jokic is the rightful MVP

  • Well deserved

  • Congrats to the Joker!!!! We’ll deserved!!!!

  • Look at Jokic man, so inspirational.

  • “First of many” LMFAO u know that’s cap it’s gonna be another 50 years before the nuggets have another mvp

    • @LB86 he won mvp because he had one of the greatest statistical seasons in nba history, broke two wilt chamberlain records and had a top 10 per in history. You wouldn’t know that because your basketball knowledge is zero. His stats, impact and value to his team is greater than anyone you mentioned.

    • @Fantomas646 He's actually 26 and he only won mvp this year because the warriors were bad, and Embiid, LeBron, Harden, and KD all got injured. Along with more disrespect for Damian Lillard. He is lucky if he wins another mvp

    • U won't know bruh

    • He’s only 25 Bozo.

  • Steph is better smh

  • Idgaf how much shit I get for saying this but fuck it. Jokic is the worst mvp in a while Steph, Dame, Embiid, Harden, LeBron, Giannis and KD were all better.

  • Would have been more competitive if Embiid was healthy all year, but no doubt Jokic deserves it

  • Nuggets better secure this dude cause he's special IQ is off the charts, him and Luka are putting the European players on the map cause a lot of people sleep on the European player's tbh.

    • @Neil 2K20 Australia not European

    • @Subham Sahoo what about ben simmons🤔

    • @Alex S Doncic dad is Serbian not mother

    • @RJ Insigne both Serbian Mothers.

    • @RJ Insigne that would be a crazy duo indeed, but like you said idk if it'll happen

  • He deserves it, he had 60 double-doubles this season and also 16 triple-doubles

    • 🤣

    • @YAWSH Pretty sure double doubles are inside of triple doubles

    • That's not possible. There's only 72 games in the season

  • Fun Fact: The TV was playing a commercial when Jokic was drafted with the 41st pick.

  • Curry got so robbed lol.

    • That's just ridiculous, lol. Steph had a great season, but Jokic had the greatest offensive season by a center in nearly half a century.

  • Well deserved

  • From from a fat kid to an MVP

  • Let this sink in he was 2nd round pick

    • “The good news about Jesus Christ! And the untold secret that many do NOT know about Christians.” (Luke 15:7)- “there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away! (Explanation: did you know that there will be more joy in heaven for a gang member or prostitute or drug dealer, etc who turned their life around than a person who was a perfectly good Christian their whole entire lives? It’s true! (2 Peter 3:9)- “He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.” (Explanation: God Does NOT want to punish teen parents, or gang members or prostitutes, gossips, bullies, etc, What makes Him happy is to see such individuals turn their lives around for the better and prove all doubters and critics wrong! That’s it. (The untold secret about Christians)- Did you know that A fair percentage of True Christians are actually FORMER gang members, or former drug dealers, former bullies, former teen parents, former prison inmates, etc? people who did bad things in their past and were desperate for a life change. So they turned their lives to Jesus Christ and the Bible. And it worked out well for them! Jesus Christ is wonderfully accepting! That is who we really are, not “holier than thou people.” Version 6.0

    • I heard he was sleeping during the draft. And the draft happened during a Taco Bell commercial. I’ve also heard he was going to skip draft and stay in Europe but nuggets promised his agent that they will pick him in second round so he should enter draft. Its crazy to think that if nuggets hadn’t of picked him then maybe he might never have been in the nba. Congratulations “big honey”!!! You deserve all your success!

    • @Ian Wheeler he was sleeping in his draft

    • He was drafted during a Taco Bell commercial lol

    • That's crazy I never knew he was taken that low.

  • Shaq was punchin the air when he found out Joker won

    • @Antonette Quizan Shaq plays both sides of the fence with that too.

    • @Dats a Paddlin yup he kinda wants to be a center of attraction sometimes but he was Happy when Jokic won it, just like in the All Star game skills challenge he was always happy when the Bigs win against smaller guards

    • I saw that...if you know Shaq you would know he likes being the center of attention when it comes to bigs

    • He was actually happy watch inside on TNT

    • Nah he was actually happy that another big man won it

  • Well deserved

  • He definitely didn’t deserve it

    • @LB86 Murray missed 1/3 of the season. Porter Jr missed 11 games. Millsap missed 16 games and isn't nearly the player he once was. And good lord, Gordon only played 25 games for them. You are really reaching here.

    • @LB86 The numbers say otherwise. Steph averaged more points, but when you combine points + assists, Jokic had a direct hand in more points per game for his team. Then when you add in Jokic's huge advantage in rebounding, plus the fact he had more steals and blocks per game, while averaging fewer turnovers, it's quite clear that Jokic was more productive.

    • @LB86 ik the game has changed they won't give it to curry because he didn't make the playoffs if curry made the playoffs I would be fine with curry winning it but he didn't cuz he didn't make the playoffs

    • @cmsmhp steph was more productive

    • @Shrey Bodapati he also had jamal murray, michael porter jr, aaron gordon, paul Millsap, a very good bench u act like canpazzo and rivers arent good role players

  • LEBRON > JOKIC

  • 🐐

  • Kuzma got robbed

  • MVP now became Most Available Player. 🤦🏾‍♂️

    • @Colby Martinez 🤡

    • Season stats don't lie my friend. Jokic had better stats tgan Embiid and played every single game of the season.

    • Dude I'm a philly fan but don't be a hater

    • Also a 76ers fan here. Take several fucking seats dude, Jokic deserves this MVP. You can’t be valuable if you’re hurt. That’s how it works. Although I really do wish that Embiid won this, I would be a liar if I said that Jokic didn’t deserve it.

    • @Philly Jackson you sound like a depressed black troll from Philly. Not my fault Jokic > Embiid.

  • From a fat unknown kid to a NBA MVP truly inspirational 💯🔥

  • Well deserved

  • well deserved

  • CONGRATS JOKER! You deserve it!

    • He definitely could if he wasn't injured

  • Should have been curry

  • Dude is ah whole pg 😂

  • Well deserved

    • Lol, he didn't get robbed whatsoever. Jokic simply had a better season in just about every respect.
