For starters, Embiid didn’t hold back when asked about the Simmons situation and the disgruntled star’s relationship with the Sixers. “You look at the comments that were made I didn’t call out anybody specifically out, I just called a bunch of events that happened.”
When Embiid was asked if Simmons’ reaction to the comments he and Doc Rivers made after Game 7 against the Hawks was unreasonable, he replied, “Oh, definitely.”
Embiid’s right, and his honesty on the subject is refreshing.
“I mean, honestly, I’m trying to win,” Embiid said when asked if he’d welcome Simmons back with the Sixers. With his unstoppable scoring, elevated transition play and improvement as a passer, Embiid is playing better than ever and well and truly deserves his consideration for MVP.
