Joel Embiid spoke to the media on Tuesday and had a lot in mind. Embiid believes he is ready to take the Sixers to the next step and finally reach the final.
The Philadelphia tackled their depth problems by acquiring Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks from the Golden State Warriors. While they turned to the bank, Embiid is still the best player on the team. This team will run through him.
“I don’t think my weight is a problem,” he said. “The only thing I always have to watch is my body fat and I feel good. As I said, I relaxed. Just do what I have to do. “
Embiid trained six days a week. This hiatus was an opportunity to prepare for a playoff run. With the loss of the rest of the season, there was more time to concentrate. After all, Embiid will be fresher than ever in previous playoff runs.
“There have been many times this year when I wasn’t on the offensive and basically went through the same moves and all of that,” he said. “But with the upcoming playoffs, I just have to be more assertive and just this guy – just challenge the ball and do what I do.”
