He is without a doubt a great player but he doesn’t put up 41/15/15 against everyone. That’s 16 points, 6 assists and 4 rebounds above his average.While you have a point with the rest of your post, I'm tired of the "Ayton sucks because Jokic owned him" narrative. Jokic owns everybody. Even his close peers like Embiid. The guy is a machine.
That doesn’t mean Ayton sucks though. Hes just not effective at stopping at Jokic… and in more general terms, he’s not close to that guy or the other elite big men in the league. He’s a very good one, but the chasm between him and the elite is pretty big.
