I don't disagree with you about Embid but the guy is playing on an injured right knee. It was obvious it was bothering him in the last game. He wouldn't be on the court if this was the regular season. Embid is a MUCH better shooter than Giannis.
He's a much better shooter than Giannis, but he's a softer player. Embiid missed a point-blank layup for the tie in the last game with under 10 seconds left. Some of it is genetics and bad injury luck (he sat out two years before he played a game due to foot issues). Some of it is that Embiid (at least up until recently) didn't take his own fitness and diet seriously.
Giannis will definitely put in the work. Whether it helps or not is another matter. Embiid has not been exactly a guy who spends hours perfecting his craft.
