Joel Embiid Bio

Joel Hans Embiid is a Cameroonian profession basketball player who currently serves the role of a center for the Philadelphia 76ers. An ideal center in the league, who can manage to snap in the post in addition to spotting up from the perimeter, Embiid has had his share of injuries that have caused hindrances in his career. However, the Cameroonian has been resilient, and has emerged as one of the best players in the league at the moment.

However, the Cameroonian has been resilient, and has emerged as one of the best players in the league at the moment.

Joel Embiid was born on March 16th, 1994 in Yaounde, Cameroon to Thomas Embiid and Christine Embiid. He is 27 years old and has been showcasing some top level performances this season after what was relatively a slow start to the NBA season. Embiid finished second last year in MVP voting behind none other than Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic. But this season, the Cameroonian will give his utmost best to bag the MVP award and there is no doubt about that looking at the way he puts up a show every time he is on the basketball pitch.

It’s Embiid’s ability to always create something special and unique in every single game that makes him stand out as one of the most entertaining players in the league at the moment.

NBA and National debut

Philadelphia 76ers: Embiid was declared for the 2014 NBA draft on 9th of April, 2014. His debut with the 76ers came on 4th October, 2016 in which he managed to record six points, four rebounds and two blocks within just 13 minutes.

National debut: Embiid went on to be named for the Cameroon national basketball preliminary team on 7th February, 2017 to compete in the 2017 FIBA AfroBasket in the Republic of Congo. But unfortunately, he did not compete in the competition, although he is eligible to represent the Cameroon national basketball team.
