  • Joel Embiid's injury a blow, but lofty goals remain when he returns

    Joel Embiid's injury a blow, but lofty goals remain when he returns originally appeared on nbcsportsphiladelphia.com The news of a Joel Embiid injury is not what Sixers fans wanted coming out of the All-Star break. While the All-Star center's left knee soreness may seem alarming, his head coach downplayed it at the team's practice facility Wednesday, referring to it as tendinitis (see story). Brett Brown mentioned that Embiid had been dealing with a knee issue "for a few weeks" and that his playing in the All-Star game did not affect the injury.

  • Joel Embiid says Michael Jordan isn't the GOAT

    Joel Embiid is a big man like we haven't seen in some time. He's both an interior force and a range shooter, and is one of the more talented 7-footers in recent NBA memory. So it makes sense that the Philadelphia 76ers star leans toward former big men when it comes to discussing the greatest players in league history.

  • Exploring Sixers' 'Ear tug world,' a fundamental part of team's offense

    Exploring Sixers' 'Ear tug world,' a fundamental part of team's offense originally appeared on nbcsportsphiladelphia.com If you've ever noticed Brett Brown tugging on his ear on the sideline, chances are he's calling an action out of the Sixers' "Ear tug world." It's a series that begins with what many teams call a "Horns" alignment - two men at the elbows and two in the corners. The Sixers' Ear tug world is one of the fundamental parts of the team's offense, and assistant coach Monty Williams has played a key role in shaping it (see story).

  • Sixers' new starting 5 is on Sports Illustrated cover

    You'd imagine Sam Hinkie is reading with pride. Interesting to note how all five guys have a hint of a smile besides Joel Embiid. His competitive side sometimes gets overshadowed, but Embiid definitely looks like he means business on the cover with that cold stare into the camera.

  • Joel Embiid picks the greatest player of all time and it isn't Michael Jordan or LeBron James

    Embiid has made an enemy of Andre Drummond, Russell Westbrook and a number of referees. After some comments Tuesday, he may have to add legions of Chicago Bulls fans to that list. Embiid does not think Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. Others like to argue LeBron James deserves the nod.

  • Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid share special moments with legendary Dirk Nowitzki at All-Star Game

    Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid share special moments with legendary Dirk Nowitzki at All-Star Game originally appeared on nbcsportsphiladelphia.com The NBA All-Star Game is a polarizing event. Some people find it to be a no-defense embarrassment while others revel in the pure entertainment of a glorified three-point shooting contest with a smattering of impressive dunks mixed in. As Dwyane Wade put it during a mid-game interview, the game is a chance for the legends of the league on their last leg to interact with the young guys they'll pass the torch to when they finally retire.
