Default Greg Oden had the same nasty as Embiid now has.

I mean just raw power when throwing down and stuff.

"Embiid has not yet taken part in full court five-on-five scrimmaging, as the Sixers continue to be cautious with their star center. Embiid has stated that he believes he'll be ready to suit up for opening night, but it doesn't seem to be a certainty at this point."


Yep, him and Oden are very comparable.

Greg Oden passed the torch to Embiid.

Offensively for sure, by a wide margin.

A healthy Oden would have been a game changer defensively tho. Would have won multiple DPOTY awards. I think people forget too he played his two healthiest years on 50 win teams where he wasn't able to be entirely featured offensively as the lead option. For good reason with Roy, LMA, but still he was better offensively than he showed in the NBA.

If Embiid can never stay healthy that's two huge talents the NBA misses out on.
