Nikola Jokic on Wednesday was named to the All-NBA second team. It is the second consecutive year he’s been voted in after being selected to the first team last season.

The 25-year-old was named to his second All-Star team in 2020. He led Denver in scoring (19.9 points per game), rebounds (9.7) and assists (7.0) during the regular season. He’s the first center since Wilt Chamberlain in 1968 to average at least 19 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in back-to-back seasons.

In the playoffs, he’s averaging 25.4 points, 10.8 rebounds and 6.0 assists in 14 games.

Jokic is the fourth player in Nuggets history to earn back-to-back All-NBA honors, joining David Thompson, Alex English and Carmelo Anthony. He is also the seventh player in franchise history to earn All-NBA honors, alongside Thompson, English, Anthony, Fat Lever, Antonio McDyess and Chauncey Billups.
