Joel Embiid, Cameroon
Despite years of poor luck health-wise early in his career, Joel Embiid is well on his way to living up to the expectations he had coming into the league.
Over the past two seasons with the Philadephia 76ers, Embiid is averaging 22.3 points, 9.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.1 blocks per outing.
Though he’s not quite on Porzingis’ level as a shooter, the Sixers big man can space the floor from three while protecting the rim. He’s also a monster in isolation and in the low post.
If he continues on his current path, Embiid will go down as one of the best Philadelphia (and international) players ever.
