Embiid is a REAL winner, dude plays for the team, not for the boxscore.

Anthony Davis who led his team to an NCAA championship at 19 years old while sacrificing his own offensive game is a stat padder?

show us video evidence of him stat padding.

what the hell has Embiid won?

That statement is pretty much like saying LeBron is anchoring the current Cavs' defense. While it's factually true, it doesn't add anything to prove that AD is some great defender.

Nothing low key about it, the boy is a monster. If he stays healthy, we’re looking at a future great.

College is a whole different ball game, son. They're just kids. AD is entitled because hw got the paycheck, and hasn't done anything significant besides busting up his ankle every year.

He's only a bottom-feeder, can't go off on the elite bigs. Meanwhile, Embiid's dropping 40 on DJ DESPITE having worse spacing than AD.

No.

Differentiate between:

"He cannot anchor a defense as good as Davis" (correct)

and:

"He cannot anchor as good a defense like Davis" (false since his team's defense is statistically lower this year)

AD is a good defender but an overrated one too. He's great at switching on guards and denying smaller bigs good positioning. He gets bullied by the bigger guys, the Adams/Embiid types (basically everyone does though)

Trolling aside, AD is great but isn't a top 5 player, he's a fringe top 10 for me.

He's in the same boat as Giannis. Based on ability on the court he's easily a top 5 level player. But he needs to translate this into team and post season success to be more widely considered in that level. Getting better team mates would definitely help. Right now I'd say he's about #6-8

Why are people bringing up AD's record as if he hasn't missed games all year?

So he's supposed to be carrying his team while injured now?

I'd take WB and a healthy Kawhi over AD in a heartbeat.

He doesn’t impress me. What happened to when big men used to dominate? Davis is not doing this in meaningful games against meaningful competition. It’s all scewed.
