Joel Embiid’s ability to fix two lingering issues could help determine the future of the 76ers

Article Summary:

In his fourth season, Embiid is already a three-time All-Star and a perennial Defensive Player of the Year candidate, so it’s tough to be too critical of his play. Like these:

In the play above, Embiid passes up a wide-open foul line jumper and instead opts to put the ball on the floor and dribble into traffic.

As an extension of the turnover issue and illustrated in the play above, Embiid could still stand to improve upon his handling of double teams; a problem that has followed him since early in his career when he established himself as a dominant low post threat. An argument could be made that if the Sixers had a bit more faith in Embiid’s overall availability they wouldn’t have overpaid for Al Horford in free agency last summer, and in turn, could have used that money elsewhere in order to better build the roster around Embiid and Ben Simmons.
