3. The Nuggets have Nikola Jokic
The biggest reason the team should be able to win a championship is because of their star player Nikola Jokic.
There is not a player in the NBA as unique as Jokic and he currently leads in the NBA in triple-doubles. He is one of the most dominant players in the league and no one wants to see him in a seven-game series.
He brings so much attention that it allows the players to get open looks. Teams are not able to beat a team when there are players wide-open the whole game and then to top it off Jokic is able to dominate on the offensive end as well.
Jokic is head and shoulders above the rest of the league with his impact on their team. He does not have a second All-Star, but he makes everyone around him better.
If the Nuggets want to win a championship, it begins with Nikola Jokic. He makes the team better, and no team in the league wants to see him once playoffs come around.
