Joel Embiid has led the Philadelphia 76ers to the top of the Eastern Conference and has had the best season of his career as one of the MVP award-winning candidates.
Superstar Big was the first choice for this season’s MVP award, before shutting him out for almost three weeks with a knee injury.
Embiid will have a great match against the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night, starting with 23 points in the first half. He finished at 36, leading the Sixers to an explosive victory of 113-95.
After the game, the four-time All-Star compared his dominant season with another legendary big, Shaquille O’Neal, who won the 2000 MVP Award.
That year, when he was a Lakers superstar at the time, was a dominant season. The Lakers have won the NBA title thanks to Shakir’s dominance and the brilliance of Kobe Bryant, who recorded an astonishing number that season.
Currently, Embiid averages 29.6 points, 11.0 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. O’Neill scored 29.7 points, 13.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists during the MVP-winning campaign.
