ZuPac > Embiid next season for sure. I rather have a 20 yr old ZuPac giving me 30+ min a game with 10-12 ppg and 7-8 boards playing 75+ games in the season rather than a 23 yr old Center who just had another surgery on his knees giving me 18/10 in 25 minutes. And plays HALF the season.

Can't argue. This is like 2Pac (ZuPac) vs Young Em C (Young Em Biid) in an epic free-style flow battle. No comparison. Young Em Biid is a one hit wonder.

ZuPac needs to look out for haters when he's in Vegas this Summer. Look out for white Cadillacs.

Wish this guy the best of luck, but he's looking like Greg Oden 2.0 at this point.

that's exactly what I was thinking...

this does not look like it is going to end well for him or the 76rs...

he's doing non-contact drills while recovering from a torn left meniscus, but he hasn't been cleared to play 5-on-5 yet.


He seems like a slow healer. Surgery was back in March. He also looks heavy which isn't good if you have knee and foot problems.

Yep, he's a slow healer...which is red flag where you're young. 5 months for a torn meniscus??

No wonder this guy has so much time to run his mouth on Twitter. #StayInYoLane

He's a joke. He's desperately trying to stay relevant with his stupid catch phrases and twitter posts. Because his play doesn't do the talking. He's good when he's on the court. But the guy is an insecure loser. Again, his play can't do the talking, so he tries to be mr tough guy on twitter.

Reminds me of Greg Oden, although Oden kept his mouth shut and was a classy guy.

Such a great player but probably won't be healthy enough to matter long term.

He can be a force if he ever stayed healthy. But then again, so was Bynum. And his time on the DL is clearly causing him to go nuts on social media. It's no wonder he has more tweets than he has points+rebounds+assists+blocks+steals.
