What Makes Joel Embiid A Must See Attraction?
Some people may say "It's only been seven games" but one could argue Joel Embiid has proven to be an impactful, must see player in those seven games. Embiid leads all NBA Rookies in Points Per Game (18.8) and Rebounds Per Game (7.3) along with being 2nd in the NBA in Blocks Per Game (2.43).
NBC Sports Radio Host and The Vertical Contributor Chris Mannix joined Mike Gill on Thursday to discuss what makes Joel Embiid a must see:
"Embiid, for what he's doing and what many believe he's going to do in reinventing the Center position becoming a 3-Point shooter, a Perimeter Scorer who can also take you down on the block and beat the crap out of you down there, I mean he's something to watch. So certainly, despite Philadelphia's record, (Sixers) are must see TV in some ways."
