Colin Cowherd Believes that Joel Embiid is a "High Maintenance, Noisy Guy"
I was gonna write Colin “Cowturd” in the headline but felt like that would have been a poor SEO decision.
Anyway, here’s Cowherd’s Joel Embiid take, and I honestly feel like there’s a lot of truth in these words:
"Joel Embiid's reality is he didn't play for 2 years because he was hurt. He needs 6 treatments a game because he's always hurt and he's got a bad diet and he's always hurt… He's a liability to the franchise." —@ColinCowherd pic.twitter.com/r08d5xftT8

Yeah, he is a high maintenance and noisy guy. But Joel’s ceiling is somewhere between the mesosphere and the thermosphere, so I think you’re willing to be as patient as possible when dealing with a game-changing, generational type of big man like Embiid.
But when Cowherd talks about rolling with Ben Simmons because he’s “quiet,” that’s a bit of a quirk to me. Do you want to deal with the superstar athlete who can do pretty much everything, even if he’s noisy? Or do you focus on a more stable player with a huge, glaring flaw?
I don’t know. That’s a question for the philosophers, or people who like to argue about the Sixers on Twitter.
