It’s still probably a few months before we see Jamal Murray back in action for the Denver Nuggets. But that doesn’t mean he’s not making his feelings known about the upcoming NBA season—especially when it comes to his teammates.

Murray, who’s still recuperating from an ACL injury, took to Twitter to talk about Michael Porter Jr. The fast-rising Nuggets forward recently received criticisms for also refusing to take the COVID-19 vaccine, joining other NBA stars like Kyrie Irving, Bradley Beal, and Dwight Howard just to name a few.

If he continues to refuse to get inoculated, Porter is set to miss several games against the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, and Golden State Warriors due to local vaccination mandates. But despite this, Murray believes MPJ is still going to win as Most Improved Player this season.

To be fair, Porter indeed looks like an early favorite for the MIP trophy. With Murray out for an extended stretch last season, MPJ balled out for the Nuggets. He tallied career-high numbers across the board while serving as the second option to MVP teammate Nikola Jokic.

Losing Porter, who has admitted that he’s already contracted COVID-19 twice, for a couple of games would surely be problematic for the Nuggets. The team’s front office didn’t make big moves in the offseason, so it’s imperative the returning core must be available at all times.

If MPJ decides to get vaccinated, then he should indeed win as MIP—Most Improved Person.
