Much closer than the difference between their defensive capabilites.

There is no world where Jokic is as good ad Embiid.

Jokic is a better shooter than Embiid. Why is this being questioned? Because of a few highlight fade-aways?

You don't even have to go by efficiency stats. Just go watch a game. Jokic is extremely skilled, especially as a passer.

Embiid is confirmed a better: rebounder, interior defender, perimeter defender, help defender, rim protector, inside scorer, post scorer, scorer overall, and athlete.

Jokic is confirmed a better: passer, shooter

Idk guys, this one is close

adorable how you break defense down into every possible way to make the lists look uneven.

Any list without #TheBoban is an absolute joke!


But really:

1] Anthony Davis
2] Joel Embiid
3] Nikola Jokic
4] Rudy Gobert
5] Karl Anthony-Towns
