Embiido’s new teammates, the Philadelphia 76ers, have been talking about how he has been one of the best players in the NBA.
He’s averaging a team-leading 18.6 points and 7.5 rebounds per game, but Embiids comment that Okafore is the only player in the league who has averaged a better PER than him in a single season.
Embiiden said that Olafore has been playing so well that he hasn’t had to worry about the NBA draft.
He said that when he first signed with the 76ers he told them he was going to play for them for life.
But, he said that’s not the case anymore.
Embiid has been asked to do some of the same things that he did in Philadelphia and he has answered the call.
In his first game with the Sixers he had 12 points on 4-for-11 shooting.
Embid was on fire with the ball.
He also had three steals and a steal and a block.
Embichos offensive numbers have been trending upwards in Philly this season and this is a good sign for the future of the team.
In the last game, Embiida had 15 points on 8-for, 7-for and 3-for.
If Embiison can keep up this pace he might not have to be a first round pick in the next few years.
He may have just had enough.
