Embiid's averaging 24ppg on 31 mpg, missing tons of games and apparently not even practising.

His post moves and footwork are already better than Davis'. His offensive ceiling is definitely higher.

Embiid, easily, by far, and it's not even close.

Embiid ahead of both on the defensive end by a miles. He's stronger than both easily, and is a better leader. Has way better footwork than the others, and has the highest motor. Anyone who picks any of the others is either a homer retard or has an IQ below 80. /thread.

Just a reminder that Joel absolutely wiped the floor head to head against AD and KAT in two Sixer wins this season.

I would take KAT first out of that list. Basically Davis and Embiid are too big of health risks, Embiid particularly. If they were all healthy and had the same durability I'd take Anthony Davis, no hesitation. I think Embiid is pretty overrated. Seems like Davis has been in the league forever but he's only one year older than Embiid (who will be 24 in March) with KAT being the youngest. Honestly feel all three of these guys are pretty overrated, empty stat guys.

And here's the white version...
Porzingis, Jokic or Markannen... who would you be taking the next 10 years...

Going with Jokic.

It's a toss up between him and Markannen. Porzingis has been the most overrated player in recent history, everybody in awe about his size and fluidity... makes some highlight plays but in reality is an inefficient volume scorer who doesn't rebound. He's not really even a very good defender, I'd probably get 2 blocks a game too if I was 7'3". /rant

If you could somehow guarantee me Embiid stays healthy I'd take him without a second thought. As they are I'll take Davis, best combo of talent/upside and health. Less injury concerns than Embiid, simply better than KAT.

It's tough though as KAT has shown for stretches at a time that he's capable of playing defense. He just always eventually reverts back to the same bullshit. If he ever figures it out consistently he'll be the best, his offensive talent is absurd.

Right now ok. But in the next 10 years Lauri will become the best of the three.

if embiid had no injury concerns there arent 10 guys in the history of the game that you would take over him building a team.. he is that good.. those two shouldnt even be mentioned in the same sentence with him

This. Thing is, Embiid is done growing, so his injury concerns are in the past. He's a bonafide legend from here on out.

Anthony Davis. Can hit a shot from anywhere on the floor. Can finish from outrageous distance from the paint. Can defend almost every position in a rotation situation. Anyone who thinks he's reached his ceiling is nuts.

Embiid is more efficient? AD's FG percentages are significantly better in every category

AD's more efficent because he doesnt face 3 defenders on every single possession. Embiid mopped the floor with AD you moron, watch a game and stop just looking at the boxscores. Everything you said AD can do Embiid does much better, and is miles ahead defensively.

He was being guarded one on one when Embiid shut him down.

Injury concerns aside, based on pure talent, I'm taking Embiid. I'm on the wagon that thinks he'll be the best player in the league in a couple of years.
