Joel Embiid should not be the first overall pick in next year’s NBA draft.
It’s not because he is already suffering problems with his back and knees (but it doesn’t help).
It’s not because so many big men with those same problems have been absolute flops (although it’s not encouraging).
And it certainly isn’t because he’s not talented (please excuse the double negative).
It’s just the result of an evolving NBA.
