Joel Embiid: “This Offseason Was Fun” (It Wasn’t)

The Philadelphia 76ers are in hot waters right now after the Jrue Holiday trade was announced earlier Sunday afternoon because it has caught the attention of Joel Embiid, who has now gone public with his frustration.

Seeing the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics improve themselves, two teams apart of the Eastern Conference, and the 76ers not improving in the slightest is a frustrating sight to see not only for fans but also for the superstar himself.

It also does not help that James Harden and Philly’s front office have been having a lot of drama and an ugly divorce, which may not be solved any time soon.

Adding this on top of Embiid’s request to the front office to improve this team to make them stronger since last off-season, it has not been a good time for Philly as Embiid is also rumored to be leaving the Sixers next season. This has been talked about at length since last off-season.

Daryl Morey’s track record as the leader of the front office has been a miserable, lousy, and very underwhelming one. This, in turn, will cause so much frustration and different emotions within the organization.

If Embiid is feeling this way publicly, then imagine how he is feeling privately. Seeing your “rivals” and teams in your conference getting better, and your team isn’t, will most definitely cause tension and cause food for thought on whether talents should be taken somewhere else.

Embiid’s player option does not kick in until the 2026-27 season.
