I posted this somewhere else, but if you have a close race for most any award in sports that is voted on by people (fans 0r media), the white athlete or white ppls favorite will often win because of bias and racism.
Jokic has had a hell of a season and deserves it - Stats check - Fewest missed games check - Den record check (slow start hurt him early but even though their 4th seed now he has the same amount of wins basically as our Eastern favorites)
-- AND he will get a being white boost when it comes tie to vote. If I had money to put on who will win, it goes to Jokic.
