Gone are the days of JaVale McGee being known as the clumsiest player in the league, there’s a new star in town — none other than The Process. Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers was named the 2017-18 Shaqtin’ A Fool MVP, winning by 58 percent of the vote — the closest SAF MVP in history.

A plethora of missed dunks, clumsy dribble moves, invisible high fives, and All-Star Weekend gaffes made him the go-to choice for the award.

Take a look at the video below.

Joel Embiid dethroned the reigning Shaqtin’ MVP Russell Westbrook, who was the first player to win the actual Most Valuable Player award along with a SAF MVP in the same season.

Shooting guard James Harden won it during the 2016-17 season, becoming the first All-Star to win the award.

McGee is still the only two-time award winner, winning it the first two seasons since its inauguration.

In case you missed them, here are the top five Shaqtin’ A Fool plays of all season.
