Ouch. Ouch. Ouch.
Joel Embiid was a complete MONSTER last night. Embiid got 46 points, 15 rebounds, 7 assists, 7 blocks, shot 14-20 from the field, and 16/19 from the line. Joel also had 32 points, 16 rebounds, and shot 11/20 from the field against the Clippers on Monday.
Lonzo Ball on the other hand…. Had a hefty 2 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists and shot 1/9 from the field, 0/6 from 3 – while warming one seat during the fourth quarter. Anybody with a brain can see Lonzo has sucked so far. He is a fantastic passer, and floor general on the break. But, he can’t shoot (at all), has no intangibles for scoring, and his body will snap like a chop stick if he goes to the paint. This moment here said it all:
He came in shooting 31.3%.
He's now 1-for-7, including these two beauties. pic.twitter.com/UQeOvpy5vh

Physical stature aside, he doesn’t even seem like he cares. Everything he does is nonchalant – looks like he’s in neutral at all times. He doesn’t have the physical makeup to play in cruise control, even at UCLA he had a lot more intensity, confidence, and just simply moved more. He’s a fish out of water, deer in headlights look if you will.
On top of this, Ben Simmons euro’d his brains out and stuffed a dunk in his mug:

Separates the men from the boys. I think this is the appropriate time for Joel Embiid to claim the title as King of LA.
