I find it hilarious how someone can say this:

Then when given Embiid and Simmons, two guys on the same team who are perfect counter examples of your...argument... you respond with:
JMAC3 wrote:Sure.... but my point is that the 8-9 guys ahead of him are scoring/facilitators who play guard/wing.
So is it a "6-8 facilitator is always going to be more valuable" or that there are "8-9 better guys than him, who happen to be either scorers or facilitators and/or guards or wings"?
You realize this is why so many people have completely tuned you out on this discussion, right?
And then we have this perfectly succinct post:

The best facilitator in the league right now is Jokic, who is also a leading MVP candidate, but apparently he would actually be more impactful towards winning if he were four inches shorter and listed as a SF, cuz 6'8" facilitators are just simply more impactful than centers and thats definitely how this works...
Hot take alert! Hot take alert! Some guys are better as basketball than others!
And for the record, in my personal opinion, If you told me to build an NBA team right now and every single player were available, you bet your ass I'm going with Nikola Jokic first. That dude is balling out of his **** mind right now.
He might be 3-4 inches too tall though... or whatever the goalposts are today.
