Lakers star LeBron James’ agent reacts to Nikola Jokic’s historic MVP win
Denver Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic was named the NBA MVP after a marvelous campaign and drew rave reviews from everybody across the spectrum of basketball. On Wednesday, Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James’ agent Rich Paul tweeted out his support and congratulations to Jokic after he made history in the process of winning the award.
The 41st pick won MVP, an example that if you perfect your craft , find value in professionalism and check your ego at the door as an athlete , the talent shines with impact ! #PlayTheLongGame

Yes, Jokic was the 41st pick in the 2014 NBA Draft and somehow kept grinding and working to become the star he is today. Rich Paul, who is the CEO and founder of Klutch Sports, deals with athletes on an everyday basis, so the fact he is blown away by Jokic’s achievements speaks volumes about the rise of the Nuggets big man.
While LeBron James and the Lakers got bounced in the first round, there is still exciting basketball going on as the Nuggets face Chris Paul, Devin Booker, and the Phoenix Suns. The Nuggets are down 1-0 in the series but can frustrate the Suns due to the stellar play of Jokic.
Rich Paul knows good basketball players when he sees them, just look at LeBron James and some of the other Klutch clients he has. Nonetheless, this is just the beginning for Jokic who just turned 26 years old in February.
