For the 76ers, this is nothing new with Embiid finding himself in the middle of chaos during the team’s struggles. After all, Embiid did compare himself to Harvey Dent in Batman’s The Dark Knight (2008) earlier this season.View this post on Instagram

“You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain #TheProcess,” Embiid cited Dent’s quote in a caption on Instagram.
This is a Philadelphia team that has fallen short of expectations with the two All Stars, Embiid and Ben Simmons, not taking this team as far as analysts believe they could, especially in the Eastern Conference.RELATED PRODUCTAllen Iverson Philadelphia 76ers Mitchell & Ness Authentic Basketball Jersey - BlackBuy Now!Buy Now!
Saturday’s 127-121 loss against the Pacers may have more drama brewing up for the 76ers. As for Embiid, he is certainly not to blame posting up a double-double with 41 points and 21 rebounds. With Tobias Harris dropping 30 points and a double-double by Simmons, the 76ers will have to find ways to get others involved to win as a team. With role players like Milton only attributing a rebound and three assists on 19 minutes played, that is not going to help this team become contenders once the playoffs roll around.

As a leader on the team, Embiid will have to find ways to get their role players more involved. In terms of his individual play, Embiid put up one of the most efficient performances in decades. During Saturday’s game, Embiid became the first player in 35 years to record a stat line of over 40 points and 20 rebounds with 3 blocks while playing for fewer than 35 minutes on the court.Next: Jimmy Butler forced to switch out jersey due to his social statement
