Denver Nuggets star center Nikola Jokic wins the 2021 NBA MVP in a landslide. Jokic from Serbia is the 6th international player ever in NBA history to win MVP.
Jokic earned 91 of the 101 first place votes for MVP. He had a total of 971 points. Jokic never missed a game this season, he played in all of the 72 games. Philadelphia 76ers' Joel Embiid, and Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry finished in 2nd place.
Jokic, 7-foot center, averaged 26.4 points, 8.3 assists, and 10.8 rebounds per game this past season with the Nuggets. He was drafted seven years ago with the 41st pick by the Denver Nuggets.
Jokic becomes the first center since former Los Angeles Lakers star center Shaquille O' Neal won the award back in 2000.
