Embiid is proving just why he was selected third overall in the 2014 NBA Draft. The 7-footer leads all rookies in points (17.9), rebounds (7.4), and blocks (2.4) per game, as well as double-doubles (6) by large margins. He’s even second in 3-point field goal percentage, shooting at an absurd 51 percent clip! Not to mention, he’s one of the funniest dudes on Twitter. The do-it-all, Cameroonian big man belongs to that neo center class with KAT, Porzingis, and Davis.
Like Davis, the major concern with Embiid has nothing to do with his talent, but his ability to stay healthy. Sixers’ fans hold their collective breaths every time he takes the court because he is that special of a player. One more injury could set The Process back years.
