This has always been my point. With the way advanced stats are, and how good Jokic is, what is to stop the media from awarding him the award every year.
People thought he wouldn't win it again this year, but he got better according to the " advanced stats".
Honest question, what if he deserves it 4 years in a row? Do we just not give him the award because it would be weird to say Jokic is a 3x in a row or 1st ever 4x in a row MVP winner? Again I just see no issue with giving someone an award if they deserve it.
There is generally a correlation between multi MVP level player and playoff success. By the time you get to 3, these players are in the top 15-20 of NBA history and all have won multiple chips. If the amazing lines don't translate to wins when it matters the most why should it be rewarded. And if he was so good in the regular season, why isn't he able to get those wins in the playoffs? He was able to in the regular season. Why is the planning so good in the playoffs that it can't carry over in the regular season to prevent the Nuggets from winning?
