They also conveniently seem to be missing the part where Denver is allowing the worst FG% in the paint in the entire NBA. I don't suppose that has anything to do with Jokic being in the paint. This is a very typical Jokic stan argument. Pretend defense doesn't exist and spam counting stats.dygaction wrote:draftnightsuit wrote:
Embiid is better than Jokic at everything except for assists and shooting %. Embiid is the better scorer, rebounder, defender, has a higher PER, and a better record. Jokic is the better passer and is slightly more efficient.
Sixers are 26-7 with Embiid, 9-9 without him. If there was any question as to who the MVP is, that answers it.
Like I said, no debate.
Embiid is not a better scorer, but a ref darling by getting 6 more pts a game from the free throw line.
Embiid is a slightly better defensive rebounder @11.2rpg vs. Jokic's 10.9rpg, but Jokic is a better offensive rebounder with 2.8orb vs. Embiid's 2.2orb.
Jokic is a more efficient scorer, MUCH better passer and WAY healthier. Glad Jokic did not have to go out 18 games to test what his team would be without him by playing all 50 games. Again, if Embiid did not get hurt, and could maintain his production, it would be still debatable though his chance would be higher. but now? better pray he will be healthy next season.

Jokic doesn't even drop to the paint in PnR defense, he stays around the FT line area and defends by trying to stop the attackers from there. Which is why the opponents' FG% around the rim is high, but Embiid is actually attacked around the rim more frequently than Jokic, because he drops all the way to the rim.
And can I get a source about this "4th worst defense with Jokic on the court, 3rd best without"?
