Nurkic showed up and the Blazers turned their season around and got into the playoffs. Not bad for being a system player.

I'll take the guy that actually made the playoffs.
You are ignoring the cakewalk schedule Portland had to end the season

And Damian Lillard

One game doesn't prove anything

5 years, on the other hand, says a lot.

Agreed

No one is saying nurkic is bad

But he's not on the level of the 3 guys. Which isn't an insult at all

Embiid and it's not even close. The probleme with him(a big one) is his health. But if he can stay healthy(wich he probably won't) sky is the limit.

Nurkic isn't on their level

As good as Towns and Jokic are, they don't play D. Embiid can ancor a team when able to play, They can't. D at the 5 position is the most important, so i can see why someone would like nurkic better.

? Embiid played like 30 games last year and impressed me way more than towns or jokic The fact that he is injured alot doesn't change the fact that he is a better player. Towns and jokic are great talents but defense is half of the game.Towns was the worst starting defensive center last year wich is a shame cuz i like his game alot .

1. Embiid
2. Jokic
3. Towns
4. Nurkic


I'd have Gobert 2nd if he was included, it would be close though between him and Embiid.

With Embiid anchoring the defense, the Sixers allowed just 99.1 points per 100 possessions, a mark better than that of the Spursí No. 1-ranked defense (100.9).


Insane stat.. Most impactful rookie since Duncan

I was itching to post this, but was like 'someone has got to point it out eventually'. So I sat back and watched this thread unfold.
