Joel Embiid - C - Kansas

What do you guys know about him? All I know is what draft sites say. He's somewhat raw and needs to learn post skills but he has the body to be a really good NBA big man.

Most don't turn out good but if one does watch out. Weirdest thing about this guy is that he started playing basketball only in 2011.

Ibaka is like the only one ever. Too much risk for the reward considering the 2% success rate.

And even Ibaka still suffers every day from his extreme lack of polished fundamentals.

re: Joel Embiid - C - Kansas

I saw him played last night vs Pitt State. He needs work,but he will be a good player, but it was just one game vs undersized div 2 team

re: Joel Embiid - C - Kansas

This kid is so athletic and fluid for his size.

Definitely worth a top pick, but in such a stacked draft where to take him would be a hard choice with so many other sure fires available.

re: Joel Embiid - C - Kansas

Yeah he's good isn't he! When I'm wrong I say I'm wrong and looks like I was wrong here. I'd take him #4 right now over Exum and Smart, but with a chance to move over Wiggins for #3. Want to see how he handles more playing time in the conference season; can't imagine he'll stick with like 20 mpg.

That's a nice move. A little more Luis Scola than Hakeem but still very nice.

Re: Joel Embiid - C - Kansas

I sincerely hope this guy doesn't wind up in the Sacramento black hole. He needs to go to a team that knows how to develop a prospect. I wouldn't mind seeing Boston win the lottery for this guy.

Personally I want Boston to land Parker as he's the living reincarnation of Paul Pierce.

He's going to dominate. Kansas should go 1 and 2.

Re: Joel Embiid - C - Kansas

Step 1: Embiid's back issues force him to rest the rest of the season.
Step 2: Pistons realize if they tank to the 5-10 range they can draft freefalling Embiid.
Step 3: Pistons draft Embiid, creating a twin towers situation.
Step 4: ?????
Step 5: CHAMPIONSHIPS!
