Embiid: Congratulations to Nikola, he deserved the award, he had a great season

Cameroon center Joel Embiid, who plays for Philadelphia, announced himself a few days after Nikola Jokic is the MVP of the NBA league again.
Until the very end, Embiid was Jokic’s first rival for the award.

“It’s something I’ve known for weeks. Maybe even two weeks before the regular season is over, after the games with Denver or Milwaukee. I just knew it wasn’t going to happen. Congratulations Nikola, he deserved the award. “He had a great season,” said Embid.

He stated that the season was exciting.

“There is nothing right or wrong, there were many candidates, it could easily have been different. Giannis Antetokounmp, Devin Booker, he especially because he was the leader of the best team. I guess every year is the way you journalists decide. Whatever goes with the narrative about who will win.

He had an objection to Bill Simons’ comment regarding the award for the rookie of the season, which went to Jalen Green from Houston this year.

“I don’t know how to explain it, but I’ll go back to what I heard in the podcast about what Bill Simons said. He seems to have objected when he said ‘F****g Jalen Green’. If we allow this type of people to vote for these awards, it is not fair. What if Green was in a position to earn the maximum contract or I don’t know, appearing in an OL-star match, and you have someone who talks like that and has a lot of power. He can influence other people in the media and then someone can say the same. I don’t think that’s right and that’s all I’m going to say about these awards. ” – Embiid added.

He then referred to the match that awaits them against the Miami team.

“I’m not stupid, but this is two years in a row that I’m in this position. It will be what it must be. Last year I fought for it, this year I answered the same questions, and I will do the same for the next couple of years until I retire, I don’t know… I really don’t know what I need to do to win. “Everything is in focus, it’s not that I wasn’t focused on the bigger picture, but now is the real time to focus all my energy on that bigger picture, and that means winning as a whole,” Embiid concluded.
