76ers’ Joel Embiid discusses Kobe Bryant’s impact on his career: ‘I’m probably here because of him’

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

Like many players in today’s NBA, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid was inspired by late Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant. Embiid has previously credited Bryant as the reason that he became interested in basketball, and after Philadelphia’s 118-104 win over the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night, Embiid again discussed the impact that Bryant had on his career.

“I was about 13 or something like that,” Embiid said. If you ever thought that Embiid’s own fadeaway was reminiscent of Bryant’s, you were correct.
