    Don’t go off narratives Jokic is a good team defender and has good hands he just not a good vertical rim protector he has limitations but he’s not a sieve

    Denver Nuggets: Nikola Jokic is a Bad Defender- Debunked!

    Y’all don’t know how to evaluate defense

    The Harden, Jokic, and Gobert points are all off key.

    Who said that?

    Jonas is also better than a good chunk of centers faced by Shaq in the early 2000’s and would be a better player in older eras with his skillset.

    Embiid is more talented than Shaq. He's so much better of a shooter than Shaq was, and he's a helluva lot better on defense.

    So Shaq will be a trash perimeter defender like half the league today...big whoop:unimpressed:


    I'll take the trade off of him going through nikka's bird chests for buckets at will and snatching offensive boards from them or fouling them out all day :yeshrug:

    I think so of you guys only remember the end of Shaqs career. I don't know what you are basing any of this on.

    Silly clip to use, Shaq bulked up during his LA tenure because he was tired of certain bigs pushing him around (Sabonis). In this era he would have the incentive and the means to maintain his Orlando weight & athleticism.


    Zion's the closest thing we've seen to Orlando Shaq and these teams don't have an answer for him whatsoever :mjlol:

    Shaq in this day in age wouldn't be 300 lb though

    He'd probably stay at his Orlando

    Shaq put on that weight due to the context of his era ... It was slower and more physical... However young Shaq was more physically built like Dwight Howard and was very light on his feet .... Either way there aren't many big man IN TODAYS game that can gaurd 3 positions down and in space at that lol ...threads trash :manny:

    Shaq wasn’t defending P&R’s well in Orlando either or when he first got to LA before he got big big.

    And he gained weight because of immaturity and bad diet. He wouldn’t just stay at his Orlando weight because he would age.

    Zion gets cooked on defense in space and is currently a below average defender.

    Plenty of footage of Shaq defending P&R’s and switches poorly on YouTube :unimpressed:
