Tobias Harris raves about Joel Embiid after career-best night
Joel Embiid was so dominant on Friday night that teammate Tobias Harris was left contemplating the big man’s place in NBA history.
Embiid dropped a career-high 50 points and collected 17 rebounds as the Sixers beat the Chicago Bulls 112-105. The center was so good that Harris crowned Embiid as the best player he’d ever played with — or would.
Tobias Harris: “I’ll tell my kids one day I played with Joel Embiid. When they’ll ask me who is the best player I ever played with, I’ll say Joel Embiid. It’s an honor to be out there with him on the floor.”

Embiid certainly is establishing himself as one of the league’s best players. He’s a legitimate MVP candidate and Harris probably has a point about him being the best he’s ever played with.
The irony is Embiid has never been shy about crediting his teammates. In fact, his GM thinks they’re a big reason behind his huge step forward this season.
