The Denver Nuggets humbly handed out a gentleman sweep to the Jimmy Butler-led Miami Heat. During the presser, Jamal Murray then settled the ongoing debate about the best center in the league. With Philadelphia 76ers’ Joel Embiid bagging the regular season MVP award this year many were riding with him to be better than Nikola Jokic. Even though Joker has won the award for two straight years.

Now with him being a champion having the Larry O’Brien trophy and bagging the FMVP award, Jamal Murray took a jab at Joel Embiid. The young guard really brought up a meme that clowns Joel Embiid for ending the run after winning the MVP award while Nikola Jokic keeps chasing the GOAT status. Jamal Murray bringing that up said: “I have seen the picture of Jok and Embiid running for MVP and Jok keeps running. I think that speaks so much about what his mindset is.”

Further, Murray mentioned how he got mad at Nikola Jokic in Game 5 of the Finals for passing the ball. He added: “I got mad at him today in the game because he kept passing the ball. I hit him in the pocket, he has a floater and he passed it out of bounds, turnover. My brother just shoot it. But that’s just the part of him, that’s just his game and that’s what makes us so good… You still have to guard him and guard everyone else.”

Nikola Jokic is not just the best center in the league. He is also one of the best centers ever seen in the league’s history. And, if someone doubts that he is just not watching the games. Joker isn’t athletic, and he also isn’t explosive but still, he’s dominating both ends of the floor with Shaq-like numbers. Also, he’s making his free throws and drilling three-pointers from downtown.

Nikola Jokic is also the very first player in the league’s history to lead the playoffs in total points, rebounds, and assists. He just had the most statistically dominant post-season ever which will be hard to match for anyone.

And, on the other hand, his competition Joel Embiid was knocked out in the second round. Now with many records under his belt and championship status it’s time for the genuine basketball world to start respecting Nikola Jokic and give him the correct recognition he deserves.
