NBA: MVP Jokić Only Fifth, Dončić takes Sixth Place?

The NBA league chose the best basketball players before the start of the new season next month.

Last season’s most useful player (MVP), Nikola Jokić, was ranked only fifth in the text published in the Canadian part of the NBA website.

In front of the Serbian center are Steph Curry (Golden State), LeBron James (LA Lakers), Janis Adetokumbo (Milwaukee), and Kevin Durant (Brooklyn) as the leader.

Right behind Jokić in the sixth position is Luka Dončić (Dallas), followed by Joel Embid (Philadelphia), James Harden (Brooklyn), Damian Lillard (Portland), and Anthony Davis (LA Lakers).

An interesting ranking, but the question certainly remains whether Jokic could have been ranked higher or Luka Doncic Mavericks star.
