Team is down 1-3 and your best player Jokic scores 7 points at the half time, he gets fouled out by Ayton , who have scored several points over him while Jokic made one jump shot over Ayton , that's it , he didn't try to post him up once in the game . He made bunch of bad plays against Sacramento in both games, he wasn't aggressive enough , to try to will his team to the victory like MVP's do in close games , against the Clippers he was average as well, I ll give him the pass against Houston who have missed bunch of players . The stats on the paper are nice but they are misleading .
Lebron James numbers from the past 4 seasons are very similar year by year in which he won two rings, lost one final, and once not even qualified for the playoff! There was nothing wrong nor unusual with the LeBron James game in the 2018-19 season, just Lakers talented kindergarten around him that season is simply not ready to fulfill the expectations of the team with the NBA still the best player (or TOP3 at least). The same about Jokic 23-11-13 TS%70% monster start of this season where he playing like a true MVP contender (TOP5 player at least) has zero responsibility for a disappointed 1-4 record. Compared to last season Denver lost three starters of this season NBA Grant, Beasley, and Plumlee, and also Craig and Juancho. Yes, we get several talented newcomers this season, but our coach doesn't use them anyway (in 5 games Hartenstein played so far only 46 minutes, Campazzo 33, Bol 14, Green 12, Hampton 6, Nnaji 4, Howard 1). Denver lost his previous depth, or if you more like it, not use on the right way potential of current backup youngsters, but thanks to Porter improvement, we can't say Nuggets are worse than last season, because our BIG3 can beat almost anyone with just decent support of the rest of the team. I don't like excuses, but the fact is that one win vs Kings was stolen from refs, in other game vs Kings we played without Murray, while yesterday against Suns we played without Porter, so this 1-4 record easily can be 3-2 or 4-1 today thanks to Jokic MVP start in just little bit less unlucky circumstances.
THE LAST THING WE NEED TO CHANGE NOW IS NIKOLA JOKIC 2020-21 GAME!
