4. Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets
The reigning Finals MVP of the defending champion Denver Nuggets is having another brilliant season once again for the Mile High City as they look to defend their title.
It seems so effortless and easy for Jokic on the court as if he's Albert Einstein on the court playing chess while everyone else is playing checkers trying to catch up to how he processes the game that's perhaps unmatched by any big in NBA History. His efficiency numbers maybe be down a bit but he's still the same unstoppable force that he has been for the last half decade and counting.
Here's his incredible performance against the Golden State Warriors on Jan.4 that included a 39-foot game-winner in what was an MVP moment.
