Arenas criticizes regular season MVP Embiid.
Joel Embiid (213 cm, C) is one of the most dominant players in the league. He made his debut in the 2014-2015 season, but missed his first two seasons and didn’t play until the 2016-2017 season. Despite his late start, Embiid’s skills have proven themselves in the NBA. In his rookie season, he averaged 20.2 points and 7.8 rebounds. However, injuries limited him to just 31 games.
From there, his growth continued. He’s used his skills and physicality to become one of the best centers in the league. As a result, he’s been a perennial All-Star and All-NBA team member since the 2017-2018 season.
This season, for the first time in his career, he was named season MVP. His season averages were 33.1 points and 10.2 rebounds, making him one of the best players in the league 메이저놀이터.
Embiid’s regular season was spectacular. However, the playoffs were a different story. He’s averaging 24 points in the playoffs. That’s a far cry from his career average of 27.2, which means he hasn’t yet been able to replicate his regular season performance in the playoffs.
Former NBA player Gilbert Arenas froze in his tracks. “If you want to criticize someone, you have to criticize the most talented player,” he told VLAD TV. For me, that player is Embiid,” Arenas said, criticizing Embiid.
“Shaquille O’Neal’s talent was huge. But he didn’t utilize his talent until he met Kobe Bryant. It’s the same with Embiid. He’s not utilizing his talent. When he met Kobe, O’Neal wanted to win, and he did, becoming the best player in the league. But that’s not the case with Embiid,” he said, explaining why he criticized Embiid.
