“Could have had a crisis in his attempts to protect Joel Embiid” Jay Williams praised Philadelphia 76ers big man, eclipsed by Shaquille O’Neal


Sixers star center Joel Embiid leads his team by example, the new tall man who now dominates the paint field in the NBA. No one has an answer as Embiid begins to make his way deeper into D. The 7’1 star is currently the leader of the league with 29.8 points per game as a midfielder. So it was none other than Shaquille O’Neal.

Shaq was the NBA’s top scorer in his first year in the league, 1994-95, and when Embiid caught the same stats, comparison discussions began in the NBA universe. While the Sixers star has yet to win an NBA championship, his performance directly challenges the legacy of the former four-time NBA champion.

The debate over who is better between Shaq and Embiid was recently featured on ESPN’s “Keyshawn, JWill & Max,” where Jay Williams gave his honest opinion and why he thinks Shaq will find it difficult to defend against Joel Embiid.

Williams said, “Joel Embiid is on his way to becoming the first NBA center to score points since Shaq. ‘What happened to the traditional bigs?’ “Remember when we talked about it? They turned into Joel Embiid. I think Shaq would have had a fit trying to protect him. Shaq couldn’t protect him. I’d have him swimming around all day long.”

“Grayson Allen will pay for what he did to Alex Caruso!”:…

Max Kellerman and Keyshawn Johnson, co-hosts of the ESPN show, began discussing how Magic’s Shaq was impenetrable because he was so fit and young at the time.

Then Williams added, “I hear what you’re saying. He was an athlete but still, I know the scouting reports of when he was a young Shaq and they just circled him because he was still having a hard time keeping the pick and roll. Joel Embiid doesn’t protect the pick-and-rolls either. I say I’m going to put Joel Embiid in that situation.”

It seems Williams’ argument is correct, because Shaq was a purely traditional center so he’s never been a great shooter or a great shooter, but in Joel Embiid’s case things are completely different, because he’s a center. score from any point of view of the court. Meanwhile, both his dribbling and shooting are insane, which has helped him. being the top goal scorer in today’s NBA. Let’s see if Joel Embiid can win the MVP this season as the stats are already in his favour.
