There are not enough words to describe the streak of Joel Embiid. Beyond the motto ‘Trust the Process’, the Philadelphia 76ers center is at the best moment of his career and certainly in the race for the MVP Award.
We already know that Joel Embiid is a superstar, but the center is confirming himself even more this season. He is averaging 29.1 points, 10.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists, the best stats of his career. He has been unstoppable this last month, as he has been scoring more than 25 points for more than 17 games. Insane numbers.
The Cameroonian is 2nd on the race for the MVP behind Nikola Jokic, overcoming this way players such as Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetokounmpo or Stephen Curry. There is still a long way before the end of the season, but it would not be strange at all that he could end up earning the award. It would also depend on how far he can get with his team.
The center already won the ‘Player of the Month’ Award in December and it seems like he will earn January’s as well. Furthermore, we already know that Embiid will be a starter in his fifth All-Star, which will be held this month in Cleveland.
Leader of a 76ers that aim high:
The Philadelphia 76ers are 3rd in the Eastern Conference behind the Miami Heat and the Chicago Bulls with 31 wins and 19 losses. The main responsable for the great season by the 76ers is Joel Embiid, who has put the entire team on his back in a season where his partner Ben Simmons is not by his side, as we still do not know anything about his future.
