Joel Embiid doesn’t like who’s new role… wonder who’s fault that is

Alright, I’m just gonna declare it.

*clears throat*

*clears throat again*


Listen, I get that the 76ers are doing very well since the trade, and that’s the most important thing in all of this, but you never want to upset your franchise centerpiece. And that’s exactly what it seems is happening.

He is, though, frustrated. He doesn’t think he’s being used right since the 76ers acquired Jimmy Butler last month.

“I haven’t been myself lately,” Embiid told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Friday. “I think it’s mainly because of the way I’ve been used, which is I’m being used as a spacer, I guess, a stretch five, which (is why) I’m only shooting (29) percent (from the 3-point line).

Embiid is basically (he is) declaring that he doesn’t like his new role on this team. And he’s right. Joel Embiid is a MVP type player, a Hall of Fame talent. He should not be taking s back seat to Jimmy Butler. Butler should be taking a back seat to Simmons and Embiid.

The same thing is happening to the 76ers that happened with Wiggins and KAT. It starts off well, they win games, but then it falls apart because there is no chemistry. It literally happens every team Butler plays for.

* Ended his tenure in Chicago poorly

* Ended his tenure in Minnesota the worst way possible

* Already has one of the best player in League frustrated.

I root for every Kansas player in the NBA but I don’t root for any two harder than Wiggins and Embiid. I literally can’t escape Jimmy Butler to save my life.

The 76ers better figures this out NOW because they get a T-Wolves 2.o
