The Serbian big man is averaging 26.6 points (5th in NBA), 13.6 rebounds (2nd in NBA), 7.5 assists (10th in NBA), and 1.3 steal over 23 games.

"It's beyond stupid that we frame this as a two-man race. Pick whatever advanced stat you want, he leads the NBA in every single one," Lowe said.

The senior writer also added: "He's on pace for the highest player efficiency rating ever. The Nuggets with Nikola Jokic on the floor: +14 per 100 possessions. With Jokic on the bench: -16.

With Nikola Jokic on the floor, the Denver Nuggets are basically the best team ever, off the floor, they're the worst team ever."

Via Basketball-Reference.com, Giannis Antetokounmpo is guiding the MVP race, collecting 23.5% of votes. Stephen Curry and Nikola Jokic are his chasers.
