Joel Embiid if he can ever stay healthy will be the best player in the league someday. His game is incredible. I also doubt he sat out last year because of injury. Philly looked really competitive when he played. He sat out for tanking purposes, I'm sure of it. This dude is all in on the tank. I hope Philly appreciates him and what he's done for the team.

 

And let's be real. If the Lakers did not draft Lonzo Ball, we would be trashing Lavar Ball too.

Lavar Ball needs to leave Embiid alone. If he wants his son and his team to go to the playoffs, we need to land a guy like Embiid. I'm praying we land Embiid one day.

Dude is averaging crazy numbers despite being on a 20 minute a game restriction.

 

He can run the floor, play inside, outside, can shoot, can pass and can play defense. Plus he's 7 feet.

The Sixers need to find a solution for Embiid's injuries the same way the Warriors solved Curry's ankle problems. People are forgetting that Curry could barely stay on the court his first 2-3 years.

We would be very happy if we had a guy with his talent in our roster, no doubt, but also cautious. He lost two whole years, and when he finally played he did it under restricted minutes, and got injured again. That's why I don't see a great future ahead of him.

I don't think there's a solution to injury woes of any 7'0 over 250 pounds with questionable knees and legs.  It's just different when comparing a slim and small guard to a huge freight train that's carrying around so much weight on his lower extremities.  

I too hope Embiid can stay healthy and play over 60 games within a season.  Unfortunately, based upon his previous outings, I just don't see his body holding up.  He may have a successful career, but it'll likely be cut short.

I'm sure he'll be really good, but he was literally one of the only NBA talents on his team. I don't see him becoming a high enough IQ player on both ends of the floor to really change the game that much.

Lavar is Lonzo's hype man.

Embiid's job is to play ball.

Doesn't matter how good you are if you can't stay on the court.

Wasnt Embiid close with Dlo?

Saw an open court with those guys (and KAT and Booker)

Would explain some stuff


Praying for  1. Youngsters Ballin (Didn't really happen on a consistent basis at all) 2. Miracle Trade (Also didn't happen. And we traded our best player for chump change) 3. Kick Ass Rooks (Zubac exceeded, Ingram tried but disappointed overall)

READY FOR SEASON TO BE OVER!!!

Embiid and Simmons were both very close to D'lo, they played and won high school basketball together on the same team.  Was Embiid, Russell and Simmons, then Russell and Simmons, and then just Simmons.  And all three wanted to be Lakers, which shared the same colors as Montverde Academy. 

Booker and D'lo are close as well like brothers, work out in the off-season together and both do the 'hotline bling' taunt. 

If D'lo had been sent to Philly instead of Brooklyn they'd essentially be the Montverde 76ers.  You'd figure if the 76ers had drafted Porzingis instead of Okafor that if you added D'lo to the roster they'd be very dangerous.  

D'Angelo Russell

Markelle Fultz
Ben Simmons
Kristaps Porzingis 
Joel Embiid  

Yeah, fortunately we didn't send him to Philly and Philly didn't draft Porzingis, cause that team would have been scary.
