Last Wednesday, the Philadelphia Sixers faced the Los Angeles Lakers. There was great anticipation for the game due to the hype surrounding Lonzo Ball. The Sixers duo—Embiid and Simmons—has voiced their opinion on Ball’s father and looked forward to this meeting. While Simmons put up an impressive triple double, it was Joel Embiid who had a greater impact, making history in the process. Joel Embiid … Continue reading The Night Joel Embiid Made History
The Philadelphia 76ers currently sit tied for eighth spot in the the Eastern Conference early in the year. Yes, that is about where we expected our young team to be fifteen games into the season.
