Best Case / Worst Case: Sixers Opening Night

Best Case / Worst Case: Sixers Opening Night

In honor of opening night, and of the renewed rivalry between the Sixers and the Celtics, and the fact that we’ve got top billing on TNT, here is the Best and Worst Case for every active player on the Sixers: Joel Embiid Best Case: Embiid plays around 32 minutes, and in those 32-ish minutes racks up something like 28 and 12.

Joel Embiid, the Sixers’ biggest star, is healthy and ready to ratchet up his game

Make no mistake: The 76ers are Joel Embiid’s team.That’s why he has a five-year, $146.5 million contract extension despite having yet to play a full season.Like Embiid, 6-foot-10 point guard Ben Simmons is a generational player. But there’s no denying that Embiid is the alpha dog of the Sixers.As a result, every opposing team’s scouting report begins with trying to find a way to contain the 7-foot-2, rock-solid post player. That task is expected to be tougher. Embiid, an NBA All-Star Game starter last season, is the best that he’s ever been. It has a lot to do with not having any...
