Default Westbrook isn't the most overrated player, AD is

Everyone pretty much knows Westbrook is an inefficient moron that so happens to be gifted with an unbelievable motor and athleticism.

Nobody ever seems to acknowledge how underwhelming AD has been; low impact player who stuffs the stat sheet, and can never stay healthy. Has been heralded the NBAs next best player for several years now and has instead been passed over by Giannis and Harden and Curry.

AD is not worth the trade drama and not worth the headache.

Embiid is better. Less injury prone, more impactful.

Embiid is done growing, so his injury issues are behind him.

Half the games AD missed weren't even due to actual injury. Pels shut him down at the end of the season for trade value purposes.

Agree, as a first option he's useless.

Davis has a skillset that's better suited as a second option imo. He's not a primary ball handler and most of his scoring involves finishing or pick and pop. Those guys have historically worked better as secondary players.

I get not really focusing on a post game in the modern NBA (still believe it has its uses though) but unless he can do the shit Giannis can do (if he even can) he's better suited having a star teammate that can handle the ball, dish it when necessary, and take over because the way AD operates I have doubts on building around him.

Get back in your wheelchair.....AD was a dpoy candidate in 2018-2019 season.

Not everyone can be MJ and mold players into great defenders like he did with Pippen.
