So Paul George is the reason Carmelo Anthony struggled on defense all these years...

Vote: Harden

I probably would have had him over Embiid, just because I have zero worries about how his game ages - agility/cunning/strength don't fade as quick as raw explosion. At 29 with his type of game he should have 4-5 more years at this level and then another 4-5 years of decent to good play after that. Embiid is a monster though, but just a significantly higher risk.

Nominate: Mitchell

Quite a few deserving candidates here, but I must be missing something on Fox. He still looks just way too up and down for me to say he is a next here. Mitchell looks to be more valuable, but I might even put Jaren Jackson Jr as more valuable than Fox in terms of rookie contracts. And I think you still gotta give some consideration to those good players with bigger or expiring contracts (Westbrook, Booker, Kawhi, Thompson, Draymond, Kemba, Gobert, George, etc) as they could still bring back some decent value.

Embiid over Harden?

Harden was #1 in Win Shares, #1 in BPM, #2 in VORP. Embiid is .. not close.

Recency bias. Rockets are struggling a bit and Embiid has been healthy and always gets talked about a lot due to his size/crazy plays.
