Bruce Brown doesn’t think there’s an MVP debate going on
As the regular season draws to a close, debate rages over who should be the MVP for 2022-23. It is clear that there are several candidates (Jason Tatum, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nikola Jokic …) and that each one has his favourite, but no less that some have more chances than others. In this sense, Bruce Brown is clear about who should be chosen, and not just looking at the statistics.
He comments before emphasizing that beyond numbers, the Serb always makes the right play.
The truth is, Jokic needs a little campaign for his own good. Although history says winning the MVP award three times in a row is nearly impossible — it hasn’t happened since Larry Bird did it for the Boston Celtics — a Nuggets player also seems to be on his way.
On the one hand, says Brown, he has an impressive average statistic of 24.6 points, 11.7 rebounds and 10 assists, numbers to which he added one of the sexiest games in the NBA. As if that weren’t enough, Denver finished first in the Western Conference with a 44-19 average. could ask him for a little more; Although it is also true that there are other players who have had great seasons.
