We’re back with another edition of “Joel Embiid dunks on a tiny man”, an offseason tradition unlike any other. Embiid was back in the lab with trainer Drew Hanlen, and he’s showing off some sick handles for a man his size.
TO THE VIDEO!
You get a glimpse at why the franchise was willing to gamble on Embiid in these videos. You won’t find many people with such a breathtaking combination of size, skill and fluidity ever, let alone in today’s NBA. Embiid has only been playing basketball for a short amount of time — and has been on a two-year hiatus to boot -- yet it looks as though the sport comes effortless to him.
Even after adding this year’s No. 1 overall pick, Ben Simmons, a healthy Embiid might be the most exciting prospect on the Sixers roster. The sky is the limit if he can stay on the court, and he’s putting in the work to get there.
