The Philadelphia 76ers believe Joel Embiid deserves consideration for the 2017 All-Star Game.
“There is no doubt in my mind that he is a serious consideration for that,” Brett Brown said. “I mean he hasn’t done much wrong for him not to be legitimately considered for that game.”
“He’s putting up great numbers across the board,” Nerlens Noel said. “He definitely should be in that conversation.”
Blake Griffin in 2011 was the last rookie to be named to an All-Star Game.
Embiid has played more than expected so far this season.
“Coming in, I thought I was just going to come in and not play a lot, and just get my feet wet,” he said.
