    Embiid is better at getting the refs to blow the whistle. Joker probably draws more contact (look at his arms), but contact often isn’t enough to get a foul call.

    Jokic doesn't make the league money because he's boring especially off the court. Nuggets don't draw great ratings. So they're in no rush to rig it for him, he knows he has to just win straight up.

    I don’t think there’s any sort of ulterior motive thing to be taken from here. Embiid plays offense in a 1-on-1 attacking manner and Jokic doesn’t.

    Clearly the former is going to draw more fouls.

    Who cares.

    It's easier getting fouls playing on the perimeter and driving inside than getting the ball deeper in a crowd. Jokic is playing a lot closer to the basket on the plays he attacks. Not falling down all the time and selling the foul is a part of it but a lesser part.

    This, plus Embiid’s games almost all come from before the point in the season the league consciously reigned in the foul calls. Joker played a bunch of games in the second, lower-foul-calls half of the season that Embiid missed.

    If Embiid plays 75 games he probably finishes with like 530 fouls or something and the disparity doesnt look nearly as proportionally egregious.

    Embiid actively hunts for fouls and embellishes contact on an extremely consistent basis. Jokic does not do these things anywhere near to this degree.

    Embiid is right up there with James Harden vying for least on court integrity in league history.

    To put it into perspective, he averages more FTA per game than Shaq, who was fouled intentionally and repeatedly to the point that every team in the league had scrubs signed to their teams just to foul him. And Shaq played on the low post, and Embiid does not.

    Sure be even still..there’s a reason guys like LeDong James draw more fouls than Steph, for example.

    Lebron actually has some egregious no calls against him. Steph though… REALLY has some bad no calls against him.

    Not quite.
    Embiid averaged only 11.6 FTA per game this season.
    In 2022-23, he averaged 11.7 per game.
    And in the year before that, he hit 11.8 per game.
