Embiid: ‘I feel like I’m the best player on the floor’


The 76ers have been throwing around the words blood bath when describing the post-player competitions at training camp.

But Joel Embiid is confident that he won’t be the one losing blood on the court.

“I feel like I’m the best player on the floor,” he said following Tuesday morning’s workout at Stockton University. “So I’m just going to do my job on the floor. I’m just going to do what coach [Brett Brown] wants me to do: Be a defensive piece, and when I’m needed to be a scorer, I’m going to be that.
