Joel Embiid lit the 2016/17 season up with his phenomenal rookie campaign….however it only lasted 31 games, putting his Rookie of the Year credentials in doubt.
If he can’t win the award, then he knows who should: his 76ers teammate Dario Saric.
After Saric’s impressive career-high 29-point performance against the Lakers today, Embiid hijacked his post-game interview to campaign for ‘The Homie’.
He might have a point.
Since Feb 1, Saric has averaged 17.5 points per game and beocme the Sixers go-to guy down the stretch.
Either way, the ROY honours are going to someone in the City of Brotherly love.
