He’s actually been getting better and better and some are assuming that he’s about to start an MVP season which could have him winning his first Most Valuable Player trophy.
But there is another honor on the horizon for Embiid and it could be even more important.

The USA Basketball team has an interest in recruiting Embiid, according to inside sources close to the team.
Embiid, who recently became an American citizen and is therefore eligible to be part of the squad, would be a huge boost to the group and could instantly raise their chances for greatness.
Embiid In The Mix
It’s obvious why Team USA would want Embiid.
The man has a career average of 26 points, 11.4 rebounds, and 3.3 assists and his latest season saw him reaching 30.6 points, 11.7 rebounds, and 4.2 assists.
The man is getting better and better and has become dominant on both ends of the floor.
He’s one of the few big men who can produce points and stop them as well – that is something Team USA needs.
The rest of the world’s basketball teams have gotten bigger over the last few years so a presence like Embiid would do a lot to achieve gold in the Olympics and other games.
America has been a dominant force when it comes to basketball and the country and its professional athletes don’t want that to change anytime soon.
But the competition has become more fierce so Team USA needs to remain better than the rest.
Embiid can help them do just that.
