“Anyway, let’s continue the Curry and Durant MVP debate”

The 2022 MVP conversation turned around Steph curry and Kevin Durant, but John Hollinger believes that Nikola Jokic should also be included in the conversation. He thinks Jokic should be at the forefront of the conversation with the MVP.

The Athletic columnist notes that Nikola Jokic has the highest player performance rating (34.2) in NBA history. He also revealed that the 26-year-old has a plus/minus tile (14.5), which has not been achieved since the league’s inception.

“Nikola Jokic has a PER of 34.2, which has never even come close in basketball history and a BPM of 14.5, which has never been done in football history either. 66.4 percent of his real shot is very far and away, the best mark in the league among high-use players – the only players ahead of him are center only for the guys stupid,” Hollinger said.

He claims that the Joker’s impact on the Denver Nuggets team is unparalleled. He added that he is the best passer in the league and comes in second in terms of resilience.

“He’s second in the NBA in terms of recovery, and he’s also the best passer in the league. Denver has been plagued by injuries, but it still plays as a dominant team in history (plus 12). .8 points/100) as long as Jokic is on Court; without him, the Nuggets play like the worst team in NBA history (minus -15.2 out of 100). Curry and Durant MVP,” Hollinger added.
