The debate about the fit of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid grew more intense each time the Sixers experienced a bad moment in a season with many ups and downs.
Jay Williams spoke about the duo during his appearance on ESPN’s First Take. Williams admitted that he would rather build a team around Ben Simmons than Joel Embiid, considering how the game has been played in recent years and how vulnerable the 76’s all-star center is.
Both Philadelphia superstars have raised many questions about their ability to lead their team to the title, although they are relatively young unlike other rivals like the Lakers, the Clippers or the Bucks.
The Sixers entered the Orlando “bubble” with the sixth-best record (39-26) in the east and headed for the NBA restart in hopes of becoming the Orlando Camp’s “dark horse” at their conference.
