It should be interesting to see if his defense translates.

Redick's impact was huge, but his defense was challenged. Thybulle and Richardson are huge defensive additions compared to Redick.

Hopefully, they can provide some of Redick's floor spacing and very good defense.


I dont find Jj’s defense to be an issue except for our playoff series with the Celts.

Well the entire defensive strategy was seemingly built around avoiding bad matchups for him, having an actual plus defender in that spot should do a lot of positive things.


Thybulle, Richardson, or Zhaire's help defense should be very impactful. Redick was limited with lack of length and athleticism.

Thybulle likes to chase down or contest shooters. He could average 1.5 blocks or more a game.

I like Thybulle’s upside as a shotblocker. But I think collegiate zone defense played a really large part on his steals and block numbers.

Ideally, you'd like a player that has played in a man-to-man system, so you know the skills they've shown can transfer. But there have been a number of great perimeter NBA players that came from Colleges that played zone exclusively. Aaron McKie and Eddie Jones never played a minute of man-to-man at Temple, and then immediately became great man-to-man NBA defenders. It has more to do with instincts and quickness, than a learned system.

Embiid is a little like a one man zone in the paint. not that the defensive scheme will be zone, but if affords athletic perimeter players, like Thuybulle and Smith, to play a little more adventurously, going for steals and blocks.

Good point, he could get beaten by NBA athletes.

However, I like how he naturally helps when another teammate gets beat.

Embiid can also switch more at the perimeter Thybulle being able to rotate to the paint and protect the rim. It’s something we were looking for even during the okafor era.
