Embiid thinks 76ers can challenge Cavaliers as early as next season

Joel Embiid expects to be back playing basketball in 2-3 weeks

Rowland and Embiid appeared on Jemele Hill and Michael Smith's The Six on Tuesday and Hill asked the 7-foot lottery pick to make his case for why he should win over the singer's attention.

"We're gearing up at the right time", said Embiid, via Phily.com.

While Embiid may be aiming a little high, there are reasons to expect improvement from the 76ers next season. I feel like the process is going to keep on going. He stole the show, averaging 20 points, eight rebounds and 2.5 blocks on a minutes restriction before a minor meniscus tear ended his season 31 games in. Speaking at ESPN's Upfront presentation Tuesday, Embiid said he was about two to three weeks from returning to the court.

Ever since the Sixers figured out fans found Embiid's love for Shirley Temples endearing, they've turned it into a branding opportunity whenever possible.

Joel Embiid's unrequited crush on Rihanna could be nearing a breakthrough.

"I mean, look at myself", a grinning Embiid responded. "I love being amusing on there", Embiid said. I was pretty lucky.

Seriously, though, now almost three years removed from becoming the No. 3 pick in the draft, Embiid, who averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists for the Sixers in just 25.4 minutes a game, appears on schedule to return for the 2017-18 season.
