Jay Bilas - who vacillates between being really smart and being really, really dumb - is comparing the Embiid injury to MJ's, saying "it's the same surgery that MJ had his 2nd year in the league and he came back to have a pretty nice career".  

 

Bigs with bad backs and bad feet (or knees) are a HUGE risk.  Someone is going to take him, no question, and he may turn out to be a steal, but if you're picking #1, can you afford it?  

 

It's just foolishness to compare a 7-footer's injury to that of a lightweight 2-guard.

MJ wasn't a 7 foot center.   Leg, knee, back and foot injuries tend to effect them a bit worse. 


"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."
