Since the end of the 2017-18 season, the 76ers have always been a force to be reckoned with in the East. Although they can reach the playoffs every season, under the leadership of Embiid, the 76ers have never been a real champion contender. With Harden choosing to leave the team, the 76ers may need to reconsider whether to trade Embiid, a seemingly unreasonable choice.
In response to this topic, the US media "fadeawayworld" listed three reasons to support the 76ers to trade Embiid, who won the MVP last season.
Reason 1: The injury problem is serious.
It is not difficult to see from winning the MVP last season that when Embiid appeared on the court, he was always a very competitive top star, but the injury problem hindered Embiid’s leadership level, because most of his injuries occurred during the playoffs.
In the past two years alone, Embiid has suffered a series of problems such as torn thumb ligament, orbital fracture and LCL sprain, which made the team unable to succeed in the playoffs.
For any team, whether players can play is the most crucial thing. The Clippers in the past few seasons are the best example. Even with leonard who has won the championship many times and an extremely luxurious lineup, as long as the core players can’t keep healthy, the team can’t compete for the championship at all.
