Nikola Jokić, LeBron James and Domantas Sabonis

All of these picks are pretty easy. Jokić is on his way to his third straight MVP. He is an absolute machine. Jokić is shooting 67.4% on two-pointers so far this season. He is incredibly close to averaging a triple double, putting up 25.1 points, 11.0 rebounds and 9.9 assists a night. The Nuggets are playing at a 68-win pace with him on the floor, and a 20-win pace with him on the bench, per Cleaning the Glass. Denver has a 125.4 offensive rating with Jokić, which would be far and away the best offense in NBA history. And on top of all of that, every night Joker makes at least one pass that leaves you either scratching your head or chuckling to yourself in a manner befitting a Bond villain.
