The NBA may have shifted to being a guard’s game, but that doesn’t mean the league doesn’t have supremely talented big men. Kristaps Porzingis is out of the shadow of Phil Jackson and Carmelo Anthony in New York, and dominating the league. Joel Embiid finally looks healthy, and is already rewarding the faith of 76ers fans who trusted the process. Who would you rather have? 🏀

If you're looking for a player with a deft shooting touch, timing, and athleticism, look no further than The Unicorn. Porzingis has made it a long way since being booed during the draft in 2015, averaging nearly 30 points a game as the New York Knicks' centerpiece. And he's doing it efficiently. 

Porzingis is shooting nearly 50 percent from the field, including an accurate 41 percent from three-point range. He's also getting things done on the defensive end, anchoring the paint with 2.2 blocks per game. Joel Embiid may be hyped as "The Process," but Porzingis is already the real deal.

Philadelphia 76ers have spent the five seasons trusting the process, and now they have been rewarded with some incredible play from The Process. Embiid is living up to the hype that followed him after he was drafted in 2014. He is sporting a 20-10 average while dishing out 3.2 assists per game. Not only is he a revelation on the court, he is magnetic personality off it, getting in social media dustups with players and players' fathers

The NBA needs some attitude, and Embiid provides that in spades. Give me The Process any day.
