Nikola Jokic became just the fifth center to win back-to-back MVPs. He joined an elite company of Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, Moses Malone and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
While saying that getting the award means a lot, the Serbian superstar thinks that it will some kind of legacy that he will look back at in his old age.
“Now I don’t think about it,” the Joker told Ernie Johnson on TNT. “When I’m old, fat and grumpy… I’m going to tell my kids back in the day I was really good playing basketball.
“Everybody knows that I’m the same guy. Hopefully, I’m going to stay the same after this. Just to be in that company with Bill and all those guys that made history in this league, in this sport, just that tells a lot. It means lot. Some kind of legacy.”
This past season Jokic averaged 27.1 points, 13.8 rebounds and 7.9 assists in 33.5 minutes per game.
