Nothing but truth right here:

Bang bang! Spot the lie. Mike is throwing haymakers out here and he’s not wrong.

Jokic is averaging 30, 13, and 10 in these playoffs. His team just swept the Lakers to make it to the finals. He played like the MVP in three-straight series while Embiid limped to another second-round finish both literally and figuratively. Joel didn’t even look like half the player Jokic is right now.

It totally sucks, but the truth is that we’ve been bamboozled, hoodwinked, and let astray. Embiid won a regular season award, and we’re gonna have to just accept it. We stuck our necks out for him and battled the VORP and RAPTOR dorks all year long, and what were we rewarded with? Wilting. A total collapse in game seven against a team that’s about to be swept by the Heat. Jackasses we are, all of us.

Embiid has beaten Bradley Beal, Pascal Siakam, D’Angelo Russell, Spencer Dinwiddie, and a 50-year old D Wade in the playoffs. There’s no marquee win over anybody. Jokic is out here with his dad bod cooking LeBron and KD.

It’s over. We lost the battle. Jokic is better than Embiid.
