2014: Joel Embiid, 3rd overall

Embiid missed his first two seasons with injuries and only played 31 games in 2016-17. But last year he played 63 games and was the reason why the Sixers finally made it back to the playoffs, where they lost the Celtics in the second round. Hopefully he can stay healthy and play in even more games next season. Runner up: Nikola Jokic, 41st overall.
