Joel Embiid tweeted: “I love the criticism, I love when I’m told I can’t do something. It makes me work harder to prove everyone wrong.”
Then, Embiid added: “But not everyone is built like that.”
Anyway, Ben Simmons’ agent, Rich Paul, told the 76ers early in the offseason the star wanted to be traded. Simmons reportedly no longer wants to play with Embiid. The team, to Embiid’s chagrin, made real effort to build around Simmons.
Sure, Philadelphia also tried to trade Simmons for James Harden.
