Nugget’s Player Only Behind Lebron James In All Start Voting
This is actually really cool, and his game is straight fire this year. As of right now, with the 2nd return of voting, the Denver Nugget's Nikola Jokic has the second most votes for Front Court Players in the West.
While a lot of NBA Players have recently spoken out about playing the ALL STAR Game, Jokic seems to be flourishing this season with the Nuggets. The Nuggets are sitting at 7th place in the West right now, with a great work load coming from Nikola Jokic, so his All Star voting shows his work put in on the Nugget's Squad.
According to ESPN stats, Jokic is the team leader in pretty much every stat this season, points(26.9), rebounds(11.2), assists(8.6), steals(1.6 way to play terrible defense, Denver) and blocks(0.6).
This is a really cool honor, honestly for a local team to have such a bonified stud. I'm not saying he's carrying the team, but, if you go to Colorado to sports gamble like I do, he's a pretty good bet on any of the prop bets you see his name under. Just going to put that out there.
What do you think? Is Jokic going to be an awesome ALL STAR this year? I think he could help Michael Jordan take on the Monstars in Space Jam. They probably couldn't take his powers with how he's playing, anyways.
