Nikola Jokic will reportedly win the 2021-22 NBA MVP award – NBA Blog

Via the Denver Post:

The 2021-22 season hadn’t even formally started when Nikola Jokic set the tone for how he planned to handle the unwanted MVP inquiries lobbed in his direction.

Leaning up against a wall in the bowels of Ball Arena ahead of Denver’s season opener at Phoenix, Jokic said he “couldn’t care less,” about his status as the reigning MVP. Indifferent to the award, Jokic, nonetheless, returned this season an even more dominant version of himself, plowing through opponents and picking apart defenses like Peyton Manning, the Hall of Fame quarterback who likes to frequent Nuggets games.

Jokic will be named league MVP for the second consecutive season, a league source confirmed Monday, becoming only the fifth center to win in back-to-back years and only the 13th player in NBA history to earn the award in consecutive seasons.

Jokic learned he’d won the award on Monday, the source said, and a formal announcement is expected later this week.
