76ers need to be careful about wasting Joel Embiid’s MVP-caliber season

Joel Embiid is having an MVP-caliber season.

Are the Sixers really going to risk wasting it?

On a night in which he was named an All-Star starter for the fifth straight season, Embiid came out and showed why. He scored 26 points in Philadelphia’s 105–87 win over the Lakers. He pulled down seven rebounds. He dished out nine assists. He anchored a defense that held LA to 41% shooting. He played in his 20sthe game in a row, the second-longest consecutive game streak of his career, and, in a variety of ways, he controlled it.
