Sixers' Joel Embiid wears ridiculous gold shoes to NBA Draft Lottery

Sixers' Joel Embiid wears ridiculous gold shoes to NBA Draft Lottery

"When we start getting good, that's when Cleveland and LeBron will start going down". The Process certainly shot his shot, too.

When asked after Tuesday night's NBA Draft Lottery in NY if he's looking for a contract extension this summer, Embiid made a face indicating he didn't like the question and declined to comment. The two hosts took their spots at a makeshift bar area and asked Embiid questions about his injury and, eventually, his love life.

Last season, the 76ers finished the year with the fourth-worst record in the entire National Basketball Association, thanks to a mark of 28-54. Then you can pair those guys with their top-three draft pick this year, and developing players such as Robert Covington and Dario Saric. While that marked their most wins since 2012-13, it was also 23 wins fewer than the regular-season total posted by the Cavaliers, who are now playing in the Eastern Conference finals.




While Embiid may be aiming a little high, there are reasons to expect improvement from the 76ers next season.

Embiid added that the Sixers could be "ready to win" as soon as next season. The big man was a star for the Sixers when he did get to play, as he averaged 20.2 points and 7.8 rebounds per game in 31 contests, all while being subjected to a minutes restriction. "Back in March we thought that the surgery was going to be a really tough one".
