Not worried about Tobi at all.
I think Horford will have to adjust his game on offense when he's playing with Embiid to provide more spacing. He already can space the floor at a pretty high level, but I believe he'll have to spend more time on the perimeter in those situations. He's a high IQ vet, and extremely skilled passer though, so I think he can make it work.
On defense I have no issues. Horford isn't some rim protector, he's a smart defender more than anything who's quick and has long arms to help adjust opponents shots. He's been one the main reasons Boston has had a good defense for 3 years and I can only imagine how he'll be now that he'll be anchored by Jojo.
Personally, I always felt like Boston caused us the most trouble when Baynes was at the 5 and Horford was at the 4, and Al was able to dip his fingers into all of the action instead of rim protecting.
I also just can't see Milwaukee & Giannis (after losing one of the most effecient 3 pt shooters in the league in Brogdon) not having issues when we can throw Embiid, Horford, and Ben at him all series. 3 completely different types of high-level defenders who also happen to have size.
