    Except Simmons has worked on his game. His defense now is much better now than what it was in the previous 2 seasons. Theres other facets like cutting down turn overs, smarter decision making etc.

    It's disrespectful to take out Kyrie for... What?... Kemba!... seriously?... May be D Rose then... But Kyrie is a meant to be a starter,these analysts are not serious and I understand Pierce is a Celtic and we know the Kyrie hate comes from Boston and Cleveland,second Perkins hates KD and all that reminds of KD (Kyrie is KD's best friend in the league) and Nichols is a media that hate Irving

    And another thing is injuries. Look at Mourning. Never played 80 games in a season. After his first 3 seasons in Charlotte and first season Alonzo only once played 70+ games except his 2nd last year where his was a role player playing 20 mins a game. Same with Shaq. By the time big guys were 30 they were past their best, especially if they had been playing lots of playoffs games. Or look at Embiid today. If you're a GM or team owner why would base your team around a big center posting up who is going to decline sharply after turning 30 and miss 15-20 regular season games a season? Why build a team around a guy that expends so much energy and pounds his body posting up and at best has a fg% of 60% when you can get a smaller guard who will shoot a jump shot from the 3pt line at 40% and be just as efficient. Plus the guard would be more likely to to play 75+ regular season games.

    0:50 Its fascinating how a hall of famer like Mourning can fundamentally misunderstand the 3pt shot. Mourning averaged .527 fg% for his career. Someone shooting 3 pointers at 36% would be more efficient than Mourning. Its not like its some complex rocket science or secret mystical knowledge.

He has the mentality athletic ability to go as far as he wants to go, that old school Jordan, give it to me in the crunch time mentality. Wouldn't be suprised if he ends up with 2 or 3 rings before its all said and done.

    Partrick Ewing had a great post game. very very very good mid range shooter(dude got 18PPG late in his career basically on 1 leg) nimble for a big man, good stamina. BEAST on D too. If prime Ewing plays today, 25+12+3 on an average day, will bust out for 30+15+3 every other weekend.

  • Houston Muhammad
    Houston Muhammad 3 hours ago

    I think Patrick has the same blind spot as virtually everyone else. The players are not the architects of the game. The owners and coaches are. I believe this small ball thing is a trend adopted by management. And I agree with Patrick that human trends go in a cycle and the NBA will eventually get back around to the big man in the middle. Basketball is essentially a big, tall man's game. And this will never change.

    Ja right now is the answer. Zion can still change that though if he come back and is a monster but I doubt that he will be considered in the roty conversation. I mean Ja been balling all year so you can't really take that away from him. Unless Zion comes back and averages 30 and 15 something ridiculous like that which I highly doubt, Imma say Ja is the better player right now and will probably be better when it's all said in done.

    I love what he said at the beginning. I was always tall for my age, six foot three at thirteen years old, so my whole life for every team I always had to play center because I was the tallest. Then as I got older and only grew to six foot four, and I was playing against centers who were six eight-six ten, and guards that were six four-six five, I became useless. My potential career was sacrificed so everyone else could play their natural role in school.

    The 3 point shot killed the inside NBA big. If you can hit 35 % of your 3s. 100 shots score you 105 points. At 50 % 2 point shots you get 100 points for the same 100 shots. Basic Math killed the inside game. Embiid would be dominant inside. His lifetime 3 % is 316. 2 % he is .525 on his career. If he takes 100 3s. he gets 95 points. If he takes 100 2s he gets 105. Stay inside, Joel. You will score more, and get more trips to the line. And somebody is getting in foul trouble. That is becoming a lost art, fouling out your opponent. Patrick Ewing did that for a living. Joel Embiid is the same. Shaq was OK ( OK ? ) at drawing fouls. No; he lived at the line also. If I was coaching in Philadelphia. Joel Embiid would be taking 0, maybe 1 , 3 point shot a game. He would get his 3 point plays the old fashioned way. And 1. Drive inside, get hit, and put up a good shot at the hoop. Power it, or go soft, it doesn't matter, he's going to the line. Where he is hitting over 83 %.

  • Francis Vincent Ong
    Francis Vincent Ong 6 hours ago

    The game changed because the rules changed. The rules dictate how a game is played. Hakeem, Shaq and Ewing all played on teams that spaced the floor and where they were supported by an army of three point shooters. What happend is that zone defense became legal. The era of the bigman ended because man to man defense went away. Shaq and Ewing would have to pass to the open guy out of the post after being double teamed but the zone defense would clog his passing lanes.

    I love Ja his talent is unbelievable but I'll take a healthy injury free Zion he's just too dominant by what he brings on the floor on both sides of the ball. His presence changes the whole game. High motor, that size, speed and athleticism. Not one pure skill but remarkable instincts and it's like everything he does on the court is effective. Pelicans would honestly be a playoff team if he played all season. They've lost a lot of close games for lack of what Zion brings on the floor. He's literally a game changer effortlessly

  • Jonathan Poon

    The progression made sense. In the 90s, many great centers but none of those teams beat Jordan who didn’t have a dominant center. Then kids were trying to play like Jordan but didn’t stop growing. Those guys were then able to pull defensive big men away from the lane
