    Default Jokic is starting his GOAT run now

    Dude will win a ring/FMVP this year, and silence all the dumbass haters who thought this guy wasn't the best in the world.

    And you know what, he may win a third MVP and go back-to-back with another ring/FMVP next year.

    Dude is a massive Center and freakish combo between Dirk/Bird with Nash passing ability.

    Jokic over the last three regular seasons.

    31.9 PER, 66.8 TS, 12.9 BPM. - a three year stretch like this is pretty much only matched by MJ and Lebron.

    Jokic over the last three playoffs.

    31.9 PER, 61.5 TS, 11.7 BPM - again this is MJ/Lebron level.

    Jokic's WHOLE playoff career.

    59 games - 29.1 PER, 61.1 TS, 10.3 BPM.

    This dude has been an all-time superstar over these last five years. People don't want to admit it yet because he hasn't won a ring, but he will this year.

    LeBron is still the best in the world.

    Jokic is knocking on the door though.

    The league isn't stacked with any teams these last few years. A lot of really good teams, but each year is relatively open compared to the past few decades.

    As long as Jokic/Murray are healthy, they should be title favorites.

    Denver doesn't have the depth to be considered that good IMO. Also a poor defensive team. Those kind of teams don't dominate.

    I mean he has been for years now. It likely won't matter because he landed in Denver. He was without his 2nd/3rd best player the past two playoffs. No other star would ever the expectations to win a ring like that. He hasn't played with another All-Star his entire career. He doesn't care about his legacy/awards etc. like he coasted the entire finish to the season instead of aggressively going after his 3rd MVP. I love Murray and playoff Murray is a beast but he can be very inconsistent.

    If Jokic landed somewhere where he got to play with a Kobe/Wade/stacked Laker team/stacked Celtic team etc. than yeah we'd be absolutely talking about the potential GOAT right now.

    I like how the game played out because Denver has a good idea what to expect in Game 2

    Not even close. Missed playoffs last year and lost in round 1 as favorites. Despite having two other top 75 players alltime with him.

    Jokic is better than prime Lebron.

    This run has been building over the last 3 years...but because NBA fans are stupid, they need to see Jokic win a ring first before giving him any legit credit. This is why I'm saying his GOAT run starts now, because the Nuggets will win the chip this year. I've been hyping Jokic up since his first playoff run in 2019 because it was clear he was a REAL superstar in the making. It's been obvious to see that he is the best player in basketball recently. People wanted to give that title to Giannis or even Curry because they won rings, but Jokic didn't have a healthy team to compete.

    Then Jokic legit faced media-fueled racism this year because people wanted to coddle the crying Embiid. People wanted to say Embiid was better than Jokic even though Embiid has NEVER accomplished more than Jokic. Finally enough people are starting to face reality this year than Embiid can't compete with Jokic.

    I haven't watch Jokic at all this season, so wow am I impressed.

    To me it is obvious that he is easily the best player in the league and has taken huge leaps forward, particularly on defense. AD struggled against Jokic's defense and he wasn't a turnstile at all.

    We're watching a true all time great, that much I am sure off.

    GOAT he won't be, but he might show us what Sabonis the elder might have looked like in the 80s.

    The NBA looks bright with the current crop of stars, Giannis, Luka, Jokic, Tatum, Zion, Wemby and others. Great era coming up after a weak era.

    Jokic is number 1 all-time in playoff PER by the way.

    Dude is so goated. The eye test also shows he is the most skilled offensive center by a good margin, and factually one of the most skilled players of all time while being 7 feet tall.

    He can score everywhere on the court at high efficiency and can make every type of pass. Dude is insane.
