Responds on his plans during NBA MVP announcement


Nikola Jokic says he hopes for a sunny day so he could spend time in his swimming pool during the NBA MVP announcement on Tuesday night. 


Jokic led the Nuggets to a 97-87 win against the Phoenix Suns, giving Denver a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference semifinal series. 


The 28-year-old Serbian was also the main reason why the Nuggets clinched a no. 1 seed in the West. 


Jokic averaged 24.5 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 9.8 assists per game throughout 69 appearances. 


The Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid seems like a favorite to claim his first MVP award. 

"I don't really think about it," Jokic said after the win against the Suns. "Like zero interest." 

If Jokic wins a third-straight MVP award, he will become just the fourth man to do so, joining Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, and Bill Russell. 

"I mean, I cannot think about that, my friend," Jokic said when asked what it would mean to him if he were to join such an exclusive group. "Because I cannot control it."
