Heading into the NBA offseason, the Sixers will definitely be a team to watch as they try to improve the team around Joel Embiid.
Embiid, who was the league’s leading scorer, MVP award runner-up and All-NBA second team this season, will be entering the early years of his career.
Former Sixers point guard Eric Snow of the Bleav Podcast Network was a guest on the Matt Gelb Show on CBS Sports radio Wednesday night and said the Sixers had better win soon with Embiid.
“I don’t think the window with Joel is as big as other people,” Snow told the host. I think it’s a maximum of two, maybe three years where something has to be done to help them win over Joel’s window of his best years. You have to approach it that way. I don’t know what Morey and Brand are going to do about it, but in my opinion, I think the urgency has to be very high.”
Could Snow be right? Does the Embiid window close?
Embiid underwent surgery on Monday to repair his right thumb, as well as a procedure to repair his left index finger and played the second round of the playoffs with a broken orbital bone in his face, the second time he’s had the injury. since entering. the league.
He struggled with a variety of injuries during his career, including a back injury and a foot injury in college that dropped him to the Sixers at No. 3 in the draft.
He’s a big man and he’s fought through a ton of injuries, so while I’m not going to say Snow is off his rocker, I think Embidd should be able to be productive, at the level he is at now , for another 3-5 years.
