If you’re a Denver sports fan, things are pretty good right now.
The Avs collapsed in the third last night and subsequently fell behind 3-2 in their series against the Vegas Golden Knights, and the Nuggets are down 1-0 in their series against the Suns. Despite that, both Denver-based teams have a solid chance of winning their respective series.
In addition to that, both teams have their fair share of superstars, which is always worth celebrating.
Last night, the the Nuggets’ Nikola Jokić was deservedly named this year’s NBA MVP. While Jokić got love from all over the Association, he also got an extra special videoboard shoutout from the Avalanche during Game 5 in Denver.
Pretty sweet! This shouldn’t be super surprising, though, because it looks like Jokić and the Avs go way back.
Jokić is a big hockey guy, who knew?
When chatting about his MVP season with the media following his win, Jokić had all the love for the Avs, and specifically Nathan MacKinnon.
Pretty big shoutout for Nate Dog!
We love the comradery between two of Denver’s finest, and we know both of their legendary status will just continue to grow in the city.
