Embiid, Simmons Reflect On Season Of Growth With Disappointing End

Clippers could be an option for Kawhi Leonard and other NBA podcasts you need to listen today

Joel Embiid's season echoed that of Philadelphia as a whole: He went in with questions, exploded on the scene surpassing expectations and racking up accolades, pushed his team into the playoffs and then the second round, but ran out of gas at the end against Boston. Smart added 14 points, six assists, six rebounds and was a team-high plus-10. Simmons' refusal to shoot the ball outside the paint and Embiid's costly turnovers at crucial times are massive holes in each player's game. The center recalled the conversations while speaking to the media afterward.

"Me and Ben have a lot of room to grow", Embiid said, according to Sports Illustrated's Ben Golliver". But by pairing Embiid with 2016 No. 1 pick Ben Simmons, Philadelphia found a young one-two punch as intimidating as any in the National Basketball Association.

Simmons apparently shares the same level of confidence, as Embiid revealed that the 21-year-old came up to him after Wednesday's loss and said the duo is going to win a lot of championships together.

"I'm excited to learn from this stuff, because I felt like we had a pretty good chance", the big man continued, "but you've just gotta learn from it and we're gonna be fine". We feel like when everybody is on, we're unbeatable. We even saw that in the final two games of the series.

The Cavs lost the best-of-five series 3-1, but had a shot in the air to win or tie in each game they lost. [Simmons] came up to me, showed me his hands, and said there's going to be a lot of rings. "I feel like I had a lot more to go".
