I’m feeling good. I’m supposed to see the doctor next week and they’re going to check everything just to make sure everything looks good. But I’ve been feeling good so I expect to be back on the court next week.
What’s the next step for the Sixers as a team in “The Process” and your expectations for next season?
I think next year my expectation will be to stay healthy and the main thing will be to make the playoffs. I think next year we can definitely make that happen and I’m excited about it. I think it’s going to be a really fun season, especially for our fans and for the city and I can’t wait.
We saw you at the NFL Draft and you were surrounded by fans chanting “Trust The Process.” How much fun is it for you when you go out and you get that love from the Philly fans and being a superstar the way they embrace you?
Oh, it’s great. I love Philly. They’ve embraced me and I love going to that type of event. I get really hyped when they chant “Trust The Process” and I’m really proud of myself because I feel like everybody should Trust The Process. But it’s really fun, just going out all over and people saying they Trust The Process, and it just really shows that they believe in what the team is doing.
For people that haven’t seen Ben Simmons on the court, having seen him on the practice court, what can you tell us to expect from your young core of you, Dario [Saric] and Ben when you get on the court together?
I mean, basketball will be exciting. I thought we had a good year this year, so I think next year when we have everybody healthy — I mean we’ll have to learn how to play with each other on the court — but I think it’s going to be really fun. I thought I had a lot of fun last year, but next year is going to be extremely fun.
