One aspect that does not need to be questioned is the play of Joel Embiid who had a terrific season.
“A lot of people get mad when I play away from the basket, but in today’s NBA, you got to be able to do everything on the basketball court especially if you’re the best player on the team and a lot of people look up to you when it comes to creating your own offense,” Embiid added.
“A lot of people complain if I don’t spend my time in the game the whole time on the block, but that’s not the way basketball is played,” Embiid continued. “There’s a spacing aspect comes that comes with it and the way I see myself, I’ve always seen myself as a complete basketball player.”
There were plenty of times when Embiid operated from both the block and the perimeter.
