• Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid said he does not want to take time off as he enters his first summer fully healthy and he envisions an "MVP type season" next year.

    Embiid reiterated his confidence in Markelle Fultz and talked up how Dario Saric's contributions went unnoticed because everyone focused on himself and Ben Simmons. We already know Embiid has a strong passion for basketball and a drive to be great – he said he already misses basketball – and it will be exciting to continue and see him grow along with the rest of the Sixers. Despite losing in the conference semifinals, Philadelphia had more success than anyone could have imagined this year.
