NBA MVP Odds: Can Joel Embiid Finish His Strong Season?

The Philadelphia 76ers have found quite some success this season despite being surrounded by drama with the Ben Simmons situation.

Joel Embiid has been the centerpiece of the 76ers success. The big man has been playing like an MVP for the past couple of years, but injuries and historical seasons from other players have overshadowed that.

Embiid is having a career year, and with the 76ers recent move to acquire James Harden, things look even better for Embiid.

In just three games with Harden, Embiid has thrived with more spacing from a guard that can space the floor and find the open man. 

This season, Embiid is scoring a career-high of 29.8 PPG while adding 11.1 RPG and 4.4 APG. For his shooting splits, Embiid is shooting 49% on the season – his second-highest of his career – while making 37% of his three-pointers.

The seven-foot center looks like he has no plans as the three-headed monster of himself, James Harden and Tyrese Maxey look to be meshing well as a trio and all three are continuing to produce at a high level.

The 76ers are the second-best team in the loaded Eastern Conference, only trailing the Miami Heat. That comes in a season where Joel Embiid was the only all-star for the majority of the season. While the 76ers have done a good job putting talent around Embiid, being the lone all-star and keeping your team at the top of the Eastern Conference should be enough to put him in the MVP race.
