Joe Embiid believes himself and Ben Simmons can still work in Philadelphia. This week, Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice reported that the Philadelphia 76ers star Embiid has privately insisted that the team fix the situation with Simmons if they get him back in the gym and around teammates. Neubeck adds that Embiid has also publicly stumped Simmons.
Embiid and Simmons are the two anchors of the “Trust the Process” era in Philly. They were supposed to be the modern era of John Stockton and Karl Malone. Embiid has said many times that he loves playing with Simmons. Much is told about a supposed rift between the two. But Embiid still seems to be holding out hope that he can run it back with his co-star.
While the duo has yet to make it out of the second round, Embiid believes himself and Simmons.
