I thought Dwight was supposed to be the new Superman.

Shaq should have dug deeper into comics and he would have found more similarities to Hulk or Thanos. Imagine if he had adopted Thanos persona early own? His interviews would have been epic. He would have referred NBA rings to infinity stones, and how he's trying to collect them. He finished his career with four though, not enough to wipe out half the NBA.

Giannis is like a leaner, taller version of Lebron. He, Anthony Davis and Embiid have a chance at being the best player in the game for the next decade.

Agree about Davis and The Greek freak. No chance for Embiid. Don't think he will last that long in the NBA.

Embiid has shown no signs of being fragile or injury prone in a while. If he holds up he'll be right there. He's like 1994 Hakeem Olajuwon reincarnated.

He's been cast aside because he's weakness isn't kryptonite.

Embiid is like a mix of Olajuwon and Shaq (compare to today’s centers), him and AD are best center right now

That's right, Shaq. The league can't fine the Lakers for tampering this way.

Without the otherworldly defense and with a three point shot.

Wow, 27.5/13.4 and 2.0 BPG. Only 47% from the field though.
