Mike Miller said "everyone in the league is starting to take heed to and understand who" Nikola Jokic is. "He’s one of those superstars, I think he’s going to be a superstar," Miller said. "I think you’ll see even more growth at the beginning of this next year, that everyone just wants to play with. He plays that style of basketball. I’ve compared him a lot to Marc and Pau Gasol, I think he’s a lot like that." When Jokic moved back into the starting lineup on Dec. 15, the Nuggets had the best offensive rating for the rest of the season. The 22-year-old big man averaged 17.7 points, 11.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 0.6 blocks, 1.0 steals and 0.6 treys after the All-Star break and should be coming off the board in the first round of fantasy drafts next season.

Nikola Jokic, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Rudy Gobert are the finalists for Most Improved Player. No sign of Otto Porter, Tim Hardaway Jr. or James Johnson for this award. The three nominees dazzled us throughout the year with Giannis and Gobert earning All-NBA Second Team nods -- Jokic did receive a first-team vote. Antetokounmpo is considered as the heavy favorite here and there's almost no chance fantasy owners will be able to draft him after No. 5 next year.

Nikola Jokic finished the season on a high note, posting 29 points (9-of-14 FGs, 11-of-14 FTs), 16 rebounds, eight assists, five blocks and one steal. Jokic had a phenomenal season, but that doesn't mean he'll rest on his laurels this summer. "At the end of the season I’m going to talk to [team trainers Steve Hess and Felipe Eichenberger] and the front office about how I can improve my body," he said. You'll need to spend a first-round pick to acquire him next season.

Nikola Jokic scored 23 points with 12 rebounds, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday. That makes it a career-high five straight games with a double-double. He's not getting cheap ones either, averaging 20.2 points, 13.2 boards, 7.0 boards, 1.8 steals, 0.2 blocks and 0.8 treys in that span. Magic Jokic will be disappearing off draft boards in the first round next year.

Nikola Jokic racked up 19 points, 10 boards, seven assists and two steals during a win in Miami on Sunday, making 9-of-16 shots with just one turnover in 35 minutes. Jokic was the best player on the court tonight and he helped keep the Nuggets' playoff hopes alive. They're still two games back of the No. 8 seed Blazers, with six games remaining, so the Joker will need to be at his best for Denver to close the gap.

Nikola Jokic flirted with a triple-double on Tuesday vs. the Blazers with 17 points on 7-of-14 shooting, eight assists, eight rebounds, two blocks and one triple in 36 minutes. The Nuggets didn't get the win and Jokic was outplayed by former teammate Jusuf Nurkic, but the good news for his fantasy owners is he should be locked in the rest of the way as the Nuggets try to steal the No. 8 seed back from Portland. The Nuggets have the best offensive rating in the NBA since Jokic moved back into the starting lineup on Dec. 15, so the future is bright for Denver regardless of where they finish the year.
