JJ Redick lists Sixers’ Joel Embiid as the 4th toughest player to defend

Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid just finished up one helluva season as he put together a terrific season on his way to winning MVP. He led the league in scoring at 33.1 points per game, he pulled down 10.2 rebounds, dished out 4.2 assists, and he blocked 1.7 shots per game.

There is so much that Embiid can do on the floor on the offensive end. He can knock down the 3-ball, he can take a guy off the dribble, he can get to the foul line, and he can really score at all three levels. He has continued to add to his game and that’s why he’s one of the best players in the NBA regardless of position.

Former Sixers guard JJ Redick played two seasons with Embiid and he listed the big fella fourth on his list of the top 5 toughest players to defend in the league.
