    Embiid is averaging 30 this season and Shaq was way more talented. Add in the fact that there is a lack of defensive bigs. You mention Jokic as if he isn't atrocious on defense:mjlol:. Shaq would dunk on him every time down the court.

    As long as whatever Shaq plays for controls the tempo of the game, Shaq would still dominate

    He’s not “way” more talented. Embiid is more skilled than Shaq and is a generational big himself. :mjlol:

    Jokic isn't a good defender either :yeshrug:

    Shaq was feasting even in the early 90s when there were better bigs. He would dominate in any era. Saying Shaq wouldn't be much today is such a nephew take.

    Shaq couldn’t play in this era because of a video clip of him not being able to guard Prime Tracy Mcgrady ?

    Jokic and Vucevic ain’t guarding shyt out here and they got defenses in the torture rack

    No one said that but this is the Coli where nikkas only go off extremes

    If you all are going to talk about his paint dominance and how it would translate today talk about how the game today exploits one of his biggest weakness P&R defense

    But if you're going to drop a player into this era you have to assume they were developed in this era, too...when Shaq came up, pick & roll wasn't used to death like it is now, so you'd imagine a modern Shaq would be steered towards defending it more. His defensive deficiencies would manifest in other areas, and considering he was always regarded as a below average defender for all but one full-season...it's kinda moot.

    :stopitslime: Shaq would adjust to today’s game on defense. Don’t forget his athleticism before the weight.

    Bro nobody gives a fukk about defense .


    Gobert is the best defensive big in the league and he gets shytted on constantly

    Jokic is a MVP candidate ain’t he ain’t guarding shyt

    Harden an MVP candidate and he ain’t never guarded shyt


    damn near half the stars in the league fall into this category.
