Making a case for Joel Embiid to be the NBA MVP

Joel ‘The Process’ Embiid took a very scary fall against the Wizards on Friday which resulted in him leaving the game and not returning. However, Embiid and the 76ers catch a break as Embiid should only be out 2-3 weeks. But, will this effect Embiid’s MVP chances as he is the lead favorite for league MVP…?

Embiids Current Numbers

29.9 PPG 11.5 RPG 3.3 APG

Embiid is 2nd in the league in points per game, behind Bradley Beal who is averaging a stellar 32.1 points per game. The 76ers are 3-5 when Embiid is not in the lineup this season. They have 2 solid big men in Dwight Howard and Tony Bradley, but Embiid is unreplaceable. The 76ers have won most of their games this year because of Embiids play, especially his play in the final minutes of close games. Who could steal the MVP from Joel?
