#21. Joel Embiid: Philadelphia 76ers
While we know that Embiid had only played six seasons in the NBA, his advanced metrics are very strong, and accumulatively getting stronger. In terms of traditional numbers, he has been a 10-20 player the last five seasons and is a four-time Second Team All-NBA Selection. We predict a monster jump for Embiid this year, just like he did last. With the Sixers as an NBA contender, Embiid could see a Title and an MVP in 2023.
