But there is no doubt that when he is on the court, he is one of the best players in the NBA.
Embiid knew this moment was coming since 2013.

How we got here
After Embiid was drafted third overall in the 2014 draft, he missed his first two seasons with foot injuries.
During that time, many fans and “experts” called Embiid a bust who probably would never get healthy.
He eventually made his debut in Oct. 2016 and it became obvious quickly the only thing that would hold him back was staying healthy.
Now in just his second season playing in the league, Embiid will be representing the Sixers as a starter with the best in the world.
In less than an hour after Embiid found the good news, he lead the Sixers to a 89-80 victory over the Celtics.
He scored 26 points and 16 rebounds, but saved his best moment of the day for after the game.

Embiid never stops being entertaining and Sixers fans should be proud of him for everything he is doing.
