Nikola Jokić voted NBA MVP, Jayson Tatum finishes in 6th
Nikola Jokić has won back to back NBA MVP awards, finishing above co-favorite and fellow center Joel Embiid. Boston's Jayson Tatum finished in 6th place in the voting. Tatum had some 4th place and 5th place votes in there, but no top 3 votes.
If Tatum played like he did starting in January for the whole season, he would have been a contender this year. Tatum should be on the short list of favorites next season.
