So I did some thinking and some research, and I think if you scope it to the first quarter of the season, who is the MVP for the first quarter? I totally agree with you. It's probably Joel Embiid. If the question is who will be the M V P, then I think it's Yokich. And here's why Joel Embiid is shooting right now from three point percentage, 42.3% right now, his best season before this, it was his rookie year at 37%. Otherwise, he's been more towards like the 32% range. So he is shooting 10% better than he normally shoots from outside from his regular field goal percentages way, Oppa's well, giving him an effective field goal percentage of nearly 60%. And again, he's consistently averaging about a 50 1% effective field goal rate. There's really no growth. It's like this season. He is just off the charts, right? And so when you look at Yokich and so again for me, I'm thinking a little bit more about what will he, who will be the M v p. At the end of the season? He has a little bit more of a progression with his scoring, so his three point percentage is way up right now as well. It's 38.4% but he played an entire, like mostly a full season shooting, actually almost 40% 39.6%. And then he dropped down a 31 then 31 again an hour and 30 30 8.5. So he is capable of shooting in the upper eighties. And so I do think I buy that and worst case he's going to drop down to, like a 34% rating, 35 which is going to be significantly, I believe, ahead of kind of Joel Embiid spot. The second point is like his scoring progression has like progressively gotten better and better as he's gotten older. So it's like 10 16, half 18 2020 26. So I feel like he's on a sustainable to track their whereas and beads really done this type of scoring before. Two years ago he was at 27 a half points a game. Right now he's at 29 so I agree with you the first quarter and beat has had amazing basketball. He's the M V P pick for the first quarter this season, but I think who will be M v p at the end of the season, which is a slightly different question. I gotta go, Yokich, And that's just more of a belief in the statistics of who's trending and who's having ah kind of, ah, hot spell.
