Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid is one of the top players in the league regardless of position. The 7-foot big man is one of those players who can just do it all on the offensive end. He can throw the team on his back in a variety of ways on the offensive end of the floor.
On the season, Embiid is averaging 33.2 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 4.6 assists as he is showing off an ability to once again score from all three levels, he can put the ball on the floor and get to the basket, and he gets to the free-throw line at a high rate.
Sacramento Kings guard De’Aaron Fox talked with EuroHoops, mostly about teammate Domantas Sabonis, but he did have Embiid as one of the top 3 centers in the league:
“For me, it’s (Nikola) Jokic, (Joel) Embiid, and (Sabonis). Those are the top three centers in the league“, Fox added.
In Saturday’s win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, Embiid had 16 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists, and four blocks as he was able to show off his full game. There is so much that he can do in order to help his team win and the Sixers are benefitting greatly from it.
