And that's the thing, it's not shameful or anything, he's just young and skinny and even though he might be a hair better than Jordan, he's not significantly so imo.
allen not starting would mean he had an enormous regression in the offseason, and injury, or major off-court issues.
He is a better player then jordan. people here need to realize that us getting beat by embiid is irrelevant right now heading into this season. people also need to realize we won 50% or more of the games an oppising big scored 20+ against us and 70% of the games they scored 30+
the nets dont care if post players go off, the view that as a win if teams are going to the post heavily because in the long run we will be more efficient even if they ahve a mismatch
but also, jordan while a great back up is a shell of what he was
It’s also not like DeAndre fared all that well against Embiid anyway. Sure he’s more A more physical defender than Allen at this point, but Embiid can just shoot from outside or take him off the dribble. It’s best to keep Allen as your starter a let him keep on figuring things out.
