Obviously you take Giannis on health alone. But even leaving aside health I would probably lean towards Giannis but just by a fraction.

Availability is the best ability.

In 9 seasons Giannis has missed a total of 82 games.

Embiid missed 215 games just in his first three seasons.

Giannis > Embiid
I wouldn't say BEST ability. Westbrook is reliably available, rarely misses a game.

Giannis is so unbelievable. He's literally a Greek god.

Lol, 2 years ago some Laker fans were calling Anthony Davis (who’s clearly inferior to Embiid I may add) a better player and someone they’d rather much rather have on their team compared to Giannis. Now it is laughable if someone even thinks about picking Embiid over Giannis.

What a difference winning a championship makes.

Anthony Davis is clearly inferior to Embiid today.

Anthony Davis was pretty clearly superior to Embiid 4 years ago. 2 years ago it was still advantage Davis, IMO.

But time changes things.

Davis has seen his stock drop due to injury and inconsistent play, while Embiid has played at an MVP level.

Giannis was probably always the superior player to Davis, but I think most people would have said Davis is/was the better compliment for LeBron. As LeBron fades a bit and Davis regresses, fit doesn’t matter as much. You take the clearly better player.
