ESPN analyst hints at notion Nikola Jokic has won MVPs, is favorite to win again because he's white

Mar 4, 2023

Nikola Jokic is the odds-on favorite to win his third-straight NBA MVP Award.

The Serbia native is well on his way to becoming the fourth player in NBA history to win three straight MVPs, joining Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell and Larry Bird.

Jokic is averaging a triple-double (24.6 points, 11.7 rebounds, 10.0 assists) for the first-place Denver Nuggets.

But former NBA champion Kendrick Perkins, now an ESPN analyst, says there's racial hypocrisy in the award's voting.
