I previously predicted this would happen (you can read that Nostradamus prediction here) Joel Embiid was NOT named the NBA MVP, even though he shouldve been. The award went to the Nuggets star Nikola Jokic.

Of course, the NBA writers will claim it had to do with Embiid’s “durability” for the reason he lost the award. Jokic was indeed more durable, playing 21 more games than Embiid. but in just about every statistical category Embiid bested “The Joker.”

This is now the second award that Embiid SHOULD have won, having previously lost out on the NBA Rookie of the Year award in 2017. The genius NBA writers wanted to punish “The Process” and gave more votes to Malcolm Brogdon and Dario Saric (hows that working out?)

But then again, the big man said it himself

The Sixers take on the Hawks in game 2 in a few hours, and my thoughts and prayers go out to Clint Capela, who has to guard Embiid after he finds out he lost out on the MVP

Yes! I am biased, and unapologetic about it.
