Career of Joel Embiid
Joel went to the University of Kansas for a single year before being designated as one of the 30 finalists for Naismith College Player of the Year. During his time in Kansas, he played 28 games with a good average. This feat was acknowledged when he was honored with the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and a place in the second team of All-Big 12. But he missed playing it all because of a stress fracture.
9, April 2014 proved to be a lucky day as Joel declared for the 2014 NBA draft. It was here that he bid goodbye to college. Philadelphia 76ers third pick was a boon for him, making him the third and the highest selected Cameroon-born player.
Joel, however, did not have a smooth start to his NBA career. He couldn’t play the 2014-15 season owing to injuries. As he gearing up to take part in the 2015-16 season, it was revealed in a CT scan that he was far from being healed. Therefore, he had to miss out on that season too.
Joel finally saw light at the end of the tunnel, when he appeared in the 76ers’ first pregame season against the Boston Celtics in 2016. Embiid (finally) made his highly anticipated NBA regular season debut against Oklahoma City Thunder in the season opener. He earned his team valuable points and made several career-high performances only to outperform his feats (he took “records are meant to be broken” seriously).
Joel kept up his play and broke many records despite several injuries. He missed the rest of the 2016-17 season owing to another injury, but that didn’t hinder him from taking home the title of NBA All-Rookie First Team.
Embiid maintained his stint of great performances and in the 2018-19 season, entered as one of the elite seven to have 2000 points, 1000 rebounds, and 200 blocks in his first 100 games (now that’s impressive!) Embiid sustained other injuries mostly in his leg which led to missing out on many games. 2020-21 remains one of his best seasons as he came in second in NBA Most Valuable Player Award. Philadelphia, on the other hand, did not make the best out of the season.
Embiid tested positive for Covid during the 2021-22 season, which led him to miss out on a few games, but he came back with a bang. He kept on performing for his team and ended the season with thumb surgery. (Injuries are fond of this man). Despite playing a limited number of games, Joel won countless matches and important titles.
He is also eligible for playing in the Cameroon national basketball team and his recent grant of French citizenship will allow him to play for the French national team as well.
Here’s to wishing we see more of him in the coming seasons without as many injuries. (he’s only 28…he has the world to conquer)
