It's clearly Jokic to me. From what I'm reading and hearing on podcasts, this is where the media guys are at too. All the other somewhat serious candidates (but especially Embiid) just didn't play enough games to justify putting them above Jokic IMO.
The only media guy I hadn't heard go all in on Jokic was Windhorst. He threw temper tantrum that Embiid was "being looked over for only missing a few games and it wasn't even his fault!!!11!"
It was so bad (and went on for like 15m), that Tim Macmahon or Bontemps straight up called him a jackass on his own podcast.
ngl it was incredible.
* I took it as him trying to be stealthy and backing LeBron. The guy went ON and ON about how Embiid hasn't missed THAT many games and how he was so ashamed that his media brethren would be so short sighted. Like the next day it was "LeBron has missed x games but still hasn't missed as many games as Embiid"
