NBA: Joel Embiid more than ever the MVP of the season

Joel Embiid comme un MVP porte encore les Sixers
NBA: Joel Embiid more than ever the MVP of the season

Despite several absences the clash between Nets and Sixers held all its promises. The last word went to Philadelphia (123-117) hugely orchestrated by Joel Embiid with 39 points and 13 rebounds. The Cameroonian is the future MVP for sure.

The few fans in the Philadelphia arena were chanting MVP's from the first foul Joel Embiid got. And they're not wrong. In this clash against Brooklyn for first place in the East, the Cameroonian pivot came out with an MVP game. Always in his ultra wide register. Able to punish three points when the Nets' interior do not want to go out on him but also dominant at mid-distance or under the paint when he is well served by his teammates. The Process is a nightmare for his opponents. Yet on the other side, Kyrie Irving, without his sidekicks Kevin Durant and James Harden, tries to limit the damage.

MVP ahead of Jokic

The Nets point guard scored 37 points and dished out 9 assists. But it's not enough to meet the challenge of Embiid who compiles 39 points, 13 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks. The Cameroonian shows once again that he is, this year, the boss of the League. And it is hard to see how the MVP title could escape him if he doesn't get injured. Nicolas Jokic may have had a great season (26 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists) but Jojo is still the best. Not only does he lead the Sixers to first place in the East while Denver is 4th in the West, but the Cameroonian also has incredible stats (29 pts, 11 rbds). Only one African basketball player has won the MVP title in the history of the NBA. It is the Nigerian Hakeem Olajuwon in 1994.
