The big man admitted he got more comfortable and effective with each game, and that was his goal entering Summer League play. He knows that this is just the beginning of a long NBA journey and that all he can do is try to improve each time he takes the court. “Progress – that’s what it is about,” Okafor said. “It’s a long process. There’s a lot of progression I’m going to have to make. I’m only 19, so I have a lot of time. I’m just trusting the process. Any progress I can make, I’ll take it.”

“I knew about it before [it was announced]; we talked about it a few weeks ago,” Okafor said of Embiid’s injury. “It’s unfortunate, but I’m here for him. I know he’s definitely disappointed. I’m just going to be there for him and play for him as well. … It doesn’t [change my role]. My role is to dominate. I’m one of the centerpieces of this team, so my role is the same.”
