Should be, he's got my vote. Who else is better than him in the frontcourt this season? Lebron, Giannis, who else? Embiid?

This is his 3rd season, if he's gonna be special, he's gonna start this year. I will watch just for him, just don't wanna see him go flying around for them putback dunks. I cringe everytime he falls.

In the east or in general?

In the east LeBron, Giannis, Embiid, Hayward (but hes hurt unfortunately), Love, and I guess you could argued Whiteside or Horford. Hes got the potential to easily surpass everyone except the first 3 tho. Idk how good he can be though. He should be special but who knows.

He should make it, not as a starter though.

LeBron, Giannis, Love (frontcourt)

Yeah I meant the East. You think I left off KD and Kawhi by accident?

I think he has what it takes to be top 4. There is no way Horford is better than him. Whiteside is debatable, it can be argued.

Pretty sure Embiid prob is a lock to start just because of his tweeting. So him, Lebron and Giannis to start.

Horford is underrated and KP hasn’t been a star yet.

He’s almost certainly not but you could argue he was LAST YEAR which was my point.

Certainly not what? Horford put up 11/6.5/4.5 with a 15.7 PER and .511 TS% last year. That's not even better than rookie KP.

Got stats wrong, but he was still only 14/7/5. Still not better than KP. He's not a scrub, but he's not an All Star level player anymore.
