Nikola Jokic is one of the best big men in the game of basketball currently. He is one of the best passers in the league at 7 feet, and he is a very skilled scorer on the interior as well. Overall, he is one of the most unique players that the game has seen and he is the greatest passing big man of all time.

It was previously revealed that Nikola Jokic won the 2021-22 MVP, and there is no doubt that he had a deserving case for the award. Even though he was eliminated in the first round, Nikola Jokic had an insane playoff run on an individual level, putting up 31.0 PPG, 13.2 RPG, and 5.8 APG.

A video of Nikola Jokic accepting his MVP has recently gone viral, with the MVP riding up on a horse to get his award. Nikola Jokic's passion for horses is well-noted, with some jokingly saying that he was happier holding a horse racing trophy than he did with his first MVP in 2021.

Hopefully, Nikola Jokic is able to get further in the playoffs next year than he did this season. He should be getting co-stars Michael Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray next season, and the Denver Nuggets should be a contender next season. As long as they're healthy when the postseason rolls around, they should be a contender in the Western Conference.

As of right now, Nikola Jokic is clearly enjoying his offseason. Hopefully, he comes refreshed into next season and is able to continue playing at an MVP level. There's no doubt that Nikola Jokic is a superstar that has the required talent to be a No. 1 option on a championship team, and we'll see if he's able to will the Denver Nuggets to their first-ever championship next season.
