Embiid has drawn comparisons to both Hakeem Olajuwon (a Hall of Famer) and Greg Oden (a bust) before even playing an NBA game. Chances are he won't be either Olajuwon or Oden, and that he'll be a very solid -- but not spectacular -- player for years to come. The Magic would be wise to take Embiid here. Some speculate that he'll slide to No. 6, or even further, because of injury concerns, but the Magic should gamble on Embiid to avoid being one of the teams that regrettably passed him up.
