He does miss guys and he often holds on to the ball too long before passing or shooting. If he was more decisive and made better reads he'd eat Gasol and Horford alive. And less face it he was sick in addition to being out of shape the last four games. Game three he looked as physically good as he had all playoffs and he destroyed Gasol. Then he got the flu or whatever the hell that was that just doesnt go away in a week.
Agree. Embiid just too slow to make decisions
You need Shaq at his most dominant. It when he makes on dribble and attacks. Embiid needs to make his move quick. If it’s not there. Pass it.
Embiid needs to read defense. We all see what he sees on tvs we watch except embiid doesn’t read the defense. Because embiid is physically bigger than most of the guys. He’s giving the other teams time to react by being slow in his decision making. That’s really what teams who defend embiid count on.
It’s over for the league once his decision making process improves. The cheat defender won’t have time to react if embiid is more decisive.
He’s got off season. Hopefully the knee isn’t a long term issue.
I’d like to see him plus 30-32 minutes next season. Pace himself. We don’t care if he misses back to backs. The goal is to be healthy for the playoffs.
We saw huge red flags way before the all star break with embiid. But the team kept letting him play. Or embiid kept telling the team he’s ok and wants to play.
60-65 games with embiid is what we should target.
Not embiid playing 54 of the first 58 games. And not 10 of the last 24 games. Space out the rest
