Philadelphia 76ers: Who on the Brooklyn Nets can guard Joel Embiid?



Article Summary:

Embiid dominates the two centers on the roster that play and Simmons has been heralded as having the ability to guard every position on the floor.

  • Joel Embiid: 7-foot, 280 pounds
  • Ben Simmons: 6-foot-11, 240 pounds
  • LaMarcus Aldridge: 6-foot-11, 250 pounds
  • Andre Drummond: 6-foot-10, 280 pounds

Even though Ben is a point guard, he surprisingly only gives up an inch to Embiid. His smaller 240-pound frame also gives Simmons the speed to keep up with a freak of nature like Embiid, where Aldridge and Drummond are too slow.

Naturally, putting Simmons on Embiid would free up James Harden to have a lesser defender on him, but the alternative is putting Simmons on Harden and letting Embiid go for 50 points every night.
