And NO, I don’t believe Joel Embiid will be suiting up in purple and gold anytime soon, but with how crazy player movement has been in the NBA, things change very quickly and who the hell knows what the future holds for Embiid, especially if things head south in Philly. – 2:00 PM

More on this storyline

In the process of discussing the launch of his new production studio, Embiid provided the following quote that is going viral on Monday morning: “I just want to win a championship, whatever it takes. I don’t know where that’s going to be, whether it’s in Philly or anywhere else. I just want to have a chance to accomplish that, I want to see what that feels like to win that first one, and then you can think about the next one. It’s not easy, it takes more than one two or three guys. Got to have good people around you, and myself, every single day I work hard to be at that level so I can push us to make it happen. Every single day that’s working toward that goal, that’s where my mindset has always been. MVP is just an added bonus.” -via Philly Voice / July 17, 2023
Joel Embiid: “I like the challenge. Can be frustrating at times, because over and over and over, same things might happen. There’s never any opportunity, all my years in the league, I feel like every single year it’s always been different teams, it has always been change. But I do like the challenge. It doesn’t matter who’s on my team, I just want to go out and try to do the best job possible to put us in a position to win.” -via Philly Voice / July 17, 2023
