Gettings fans back, even if it’s just 3,100 of Philly’s best and brightest, will surely help to bring back that ruckus atmosphere that made the Well Fargo Center one of the toughest home courts in the NBA and only fuel Joel Embiid’s MVP candidacy in what’s shaping up to be a two-man race between “The King” and “The Process.”
If Embiid keeps playing like he did versus the Jazz, I certainly won’t bet against him.
Once upon a time in the not too distant past, fans, pundits, and outside observers alike openly opined over whether the Sixers should trade away Joel Embiid to fully build around Ben Simmons. Now? Now Embiid is an MVP favorite, the best player on the best team in the East, and has arguably cemented himself as the most talented 7-footer in NBA history, at least according to Max Kellerman. While only time will tell how long Embiid’s “Process Prime” will last, it’s nice to know at least some fans will get a chance to see him perform like the best player on planet earth.
