Bob Ford of the Inky is Philly’s best columnist, and he is not given to exaggeration.
So, this morning when he wrote this rave about Joel Embiid (above with coach Brett Brown), we noticed and so should you:
“At the far end of the court, literally and figuratively towering over the proceedings, Joel Embiid was working on his low-post moves against a purposely pliant defender. Embiid is monstrously big now. He grew approximately two inches in the last year and has added upper body strength. Standing near Jahlil Okafor and Christian Wood, both of whom are listed at 6-foot-11, Embiid looked to be more in the 7-foot-2 range.”
