The Philadelphia 76ers star duo of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid have been heavily criticized lately.
That type of performance had Rivers thinking and he then turned to Embiid as he compared the two All-Stars to a historically successful championship duo: Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Embiid is tough because he can do both, stretch 5’s are very difficult he’s a post 5 that can stretch 5. “
Obviously, Simmons and Embiid have a ton of work to do to really make those comparisons come true and that is to bring a championship to Philadelphia, but the talent comparisons are true.
