“There’s a lot of mystery, you know, surrounding Joel Embiid, there’s a lot of, not so much mystery, I think interest and anticipation with the arrival of Ben and Dario. There’s a real fascination with how we’re going to pull this thing together.”

The highly-skilled bigman was drafted in 2014 by the Sixers, but has not stepped foot in an NBA game since due to injury. All we know about him is he can do wonders when he’s not being guarded by actual opponents that have no plan on going easy on him.
