The Philadelphia 76ers still don’t know who’s going to be on the floor by the time of tip-off.
But regardless of what happens with James Harden, one thing’s for sure: Joel Embiid is going to be the centerpiece of their project again.
That’s why the fans must be thrilled to know that their superstar is in great shape, as he showed in a clip by destroying a huge wheel with a hammer (via NBA).
"I didn't know I was that strong!" 🤣

Even Embiid was surprised of how strong he was, joking and laughing around in the video.
Throughout the course of his career, injuries and seemingly poor conditioning have held Joel Embiid’s career back.
He missed his entire rookie season and struggled to stay healthy early in his playing days, and some were quite critical of his eating habits and workout regimes.
It’s nice to know that Embiid has left most of those woes behind him and is taking his conditioning and well-being more seriously every year.
The Sixers can’t afford to wait for him to play his way into game-shape, and he needs to make the most of his God-given traits and athleticism.
Nick Nurse’s team has drawn rave reviews from training camp, boasting a new offense in which all players are getting involved and sharing touches.
But at the end of the day, they’ll only go as far as Embiid can take them.
Whether that’s with James Harden, Tyrese Maxey, or whoever by his side.
They need their MVP to play at an MVP level again.NEXT: Patrick Beverley Names His Top-5 NBA Trash-Talkers
