Joel Embiid has heard enough about the way he plays, Barkley & Shaquille O’Neal have commented on his non aggressive nature and he’s got a more focused perspective on the issue than they may think.
Both hall of fame players believe the Sixers have absolutely no chance of making the finals, they’re both pointing out that the player that Embiid can be doesn’t seem to be his teams focus.
“I get what they’re saying, I think they’re right. I got to make a change.” said Embiid.
Joel Embiid is one of those players you’d consider a do it all center, the focal point of his team most likely changes throughout the season. The superstar center has also made it obvious that he’s been experiencing some problems with his health.
“I want to get to the playoffs healthy. The last two years I have not been healthy, two years ago it was my face and last year it was my knee and I was sick,”
“We got a new group, I’m still trying to get used to it. It’s different, it’s completely different. The way I’m being guarded this year, every time I touch the ball heavy double, triple teams, I’m just trying to navigate through it and be a basketball player.”.
Fans can bet that the motivated Embiid will be in playoff mode and keep making history on a superstar level.
