Ryan Blackburn brings on Matt Moore (@HPbasketball) of The Action Network and Locked On Nuggets to discuss this season’s MVP race. How many competitors are there? Is Nikola Jokić the runaway leader? What is the case for Joel Embiid and others? Will Jokić actually win?

Then, they discuss the key factors that have worked against Jokić in the national discussion and why there seems to be a lack of acceptance for Jokić around NBA culture.
