HERE’S THE CASE FOR AND AGAINST SIXERS JOJO EMBIID WINNING MVP!

By Jerry Wein

Just in case you thought the case for Sixers Joel Embiid winning the NBA MVP award is just a provincial thought here in Philly, here’s what the New York Times says:

The Case For:

Embiid is anchoring the best team in the Eastern Conference on both ends of the floor and does not have another bona fide top-10 player supporting him.

He’s fourth in the league in scoring, while being absurdly efficient (64.4 percent true shooting).

The Case Against:

Embiid’s counting stats are fantastic, but he’s not as good a passer as other contenders. And even with his gaudy numbers, there is an argument that Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets is having a better season.
