  • There is absolutely no one that can guard Embiid one on one he’s to large/strong and skilled. i watch every single 6er game he sees more doubles as soon as he catches the ball than any player in the league if you don’t double him with slick weak side help calls etc he’s easily scoring 40+ every night

  • Can’t believe Giannis isn’t mentioned once here. He’s the reigning DPOY and back to back MVP. The amount of media attention Giannis gets when they aren’t trying to push him out of Milwaukee is embarrassing. What a joke saying Bam can guard him better than Giannis

  • Just like prime Shaq, you don't defend Embiid. You go man to man for Embiid but defend everyone else on the team and challenge Embiid to score 40-50 points every night.

    • Heat would use this strategy. Brad Stevens would too

      wade is so oldwade is so oldپیش 22 ساعت
    • Either that or double. Honestly the former strategy is better because when you double your giving the lesser players easier shots like open layups dunks or 3s. Make embiid shoot jumpers and throw up 30-35 shots even if he hits 50 he’s not getting anyone involved and their offense becomes predictable and stagnant. Lots of one and done possessions too which lead to easier transition buckets

  • When dudes like harden and kyrie draw those fouls it really isn’t that big of a deal but when embiid does it. It hurts the other team so much because he so easily puts other teams big men In foul trouble and it really handicaps their entire defense

  • But the game already evolved.. don’t need really to defend the dominant bigman too much, I believe you just have to neutralize their team by burning them with your teams spacing and efficient 3pt bombs.. as the nets is showing now a days

  • The scary thing about Embiid is he’s a good free throw shooter. He’s not Shaq or Giannis where you send him to the line to slow him down. The dude is literally doing what Harden does and that’s purposely getting to the line. It may not be pretty or sportsman like to some people but he’s getting points and that’s all that matters to him.
