SIXERS AND JOJO WAY BETTER IF HE LOSES 15-TO-20 POUNDS!

By Jimmy Traub

Joel Embiid missed 43 games and they were 16-27 without him.

He missed February and March due to a meniscus procedure he underwent.

The Sixers were 31-8 when he did play.

Former Sixers big man Dwight Howard hopped on “The OGs Show” and had some advice for Embiid:

He’s 7’2”, 7’3”, and he got the handles, he can shoot 3s. He’s 390 — like he is big.

I think he’s too heavy for the wear and tear of the NBA season. I think if he lose about 20 points, it’ll be great for his knees.

He’ll be able to play a couple more years longer. He’ll be faster. He’ll probably be able to jump higher. I did go through a season where I lost weight. I lost 30 pounds in 30 days. The next year I came back with the Lakers and I was a lot leaner. I was a lot faster–jumping like I was 19 again.

I really believe that if he loses that weight, he’ll be more mobile. I think it’ll be smart.
