The Philadelphia 76ers are at the top of the Eastern Conference and they are led by two talented players, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. Embiid is playing at an MVP level while Simmons is contributing all over the floor while being constantly stellar on the defensive end.
On ESPN’s “First Take” on Friday, Max Kellerman built a case for Embiid and Simmons to be one of the elite duos in the league:
Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons have become an elite duo. How many duos are better than them in the league? I might put Embiid and Simmons as the third best duo in the league, so that’s elite to me.
