The first player that I’ll be grading is Joel Embiid.
Now what hasn’t been said about this kid?
He has a top tier post, face up, and perimeter game, and at sometimes can demand a triple team.
Joel is the heart and soul of the team and city of Philadelphia.
This is quite apparent because without Joel this year, the Sixers are only 2-9.
Embiid has seen an increase it virtually all his numbers, largely because of an increase of minutes, but one of the biggest areas where he has strengthened his game is playmaking.
Joel is averaging 3.1 assists, up a whole assist from last year.
And knock on wood, Embiid may finally be showing some durability, playing 44 of 55 games thus far and having started to play in back-to-backs.
It’s truly a good time for Joel Embiid, The Sixers, and City of Brotherly Love.
With all that because said, I’m giving Joel an A+ for his first half performance.
NEXT: Ben Simmons
