Look Joel Embiid Thinks His Sixers Minutes Restriction Is 'F*cking Bullsh

Joel Embiid Hassan Whiteside

Embiid also started last season in a very strict minutes restriction, which was slowly lifted after 10 games. Brown often started his press briefings last season with the magic number of minutes that Embiid, the 7-foot center, could play. This time around, he was available for just two games.

The Sixers actually do want to win this year - and the Embiid extension paired with big contracts for J.J. Redick and others implies they are going to try to make a run at a playoff spot in a weak Eastern Conference.

Nothing but optimism for a franchise that has real playoff hopes for the first time in six years. He had expected to play more in the preseason and play at least 24 minutes on opening night and has told the Sixers staff that he isn't happy with the decision to hold him back.

Ticket sales are booming, sponsorship deals are up, and fans may empty pet rescue shelters with their frivolous celebratory ritual of raising cats after each victory. But instead of ramping up his playing time for their first game, the Sixers are planning on keeping his minutes restricted to somewhere around 15. He's one of the best players in the National Basketball Association, but he's really fragile so they have to be careful how they play him.

"You think it's smart to save four minutes to end a game with him, but the canyons in between where he just sits there and sits there and then he's got to come in and save the day, I don't know if I like that", Brett Brown said.

"This guy was a cat", said Dunleavy, in his second year at Tulane.

In an era of extreme 3-point shooting, pick-and-roll reliance and guard dominance, Embiid has shown prowess as a big man who can stretch the floor.

"I don't really know if there's a solid number", Brown said, via Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer.

The Sixers can't wait to find out over a full season. "I think it should always be about how my body feels", he said. "We are going to discuss it".
