Watch a game for once. Those same stats said that Kawhi was a negative defender last season. Only an idiot would think that.

I'm not saying Cousins is a better defender, I'm just providing the facts because that's what I was asked for

Is it that hard to read the conversation from the beginning rather than just jumping in when you see fit?

Davis is definitely the best, but his health is questionable. Embiid is even more worrisome.

I'd take KAT since he seems to be the most likely player to actually be healthy come playoff time.

Do people realize that Embiid is only one year younger than Davis?

Davis played 75 games last year and if he plays out the remainder of the season he'd have played 76 games this season. His health is fine.

He has been better recently, but he left early in a good bit of those games. I'd say out of those 150 games he's been injured and left 10-15 of them.

Nitpicking I know, but he just always seems to be really beat up at the end of the year.

AD is for sure the best big man in the NBA tho.

I only used stats because that's what he asked, it's mindboggling that you don't get that yet.

AD doesn't have a bigger defensive impact than JoJo, it's not even close.

1. AD
2. Joel
3. KAT

I think Joel is the best in the defensive side but AD's advantage in offense is more than Joel's I'm defense.

Anthony davis > embiid > KAT.

Whoever thought that KAT is on Joels or ADs level is dumb.

Its like this: AD..>Joel....................> KAT

I think joel will eventually be better than AD one day.

Embiid. Game on the line you can give him the ball and he can get his own bucket. Davis still struggles in that department. Rondo was the best thing that happened to him. Davis has how many assisted buckets? Dont think you can go wrong picking either player. Both are studs. Can make arguments for both. Im going Embiid of course.


I dont know why Towns is even in this discussion. Until he improves defensively then he can be included with these two who will finish in the top 3 DPOT award (Rudy wins it imo).
