The “other” Kansas freshman suddenly has become The Freshman in the country.
(Joel) Embiid has been researching big men lately. Not the way he used to, back when he was trying to learn the game and used tapes of Hakeem Olajuwon as video tutorials. No, he’s been looking at the game’s best and surveying their college tenures:
Olajuwon, three years; Tim Duncan, four; Shaquille O’Neal, two.
“I was curious because I want to be great, I want to be the best at my position one day,” he said. “I’m trying to learn everything and what other people did. All of the great big men went to college at least two or three years. I think it’s a big factor. I don’t know if it will always work, but I think it’s the best choice.”
“I don’t know,” he said. “I think it would be too overwhelming for me right now. I’m not sure I’m ready.”
