Remember when people were concerned about Joel Embiid's health and thought he might be a bust? Well, those concerns are clearly in the rear-view mirror after another historic performance in the Philadelphia 76ers' 133-132 win over the Charlotte Hornets last night.


With a ridiculous line of a season-high 42 points and 18 rebounds, Embiid joins Hall of Famers Wilt Chamberlin, Moses Malone, Charles Barkley and Dolph Schayes as the only Sixers to post multiple games with at least  40 points and 15 rebounds. And he will now be joined by ​newly-acquired Jimmy Butler in Philadelphia.

To be mentioned with one Hall of Famer is an accomplishment, but four goes to show the kind of ability Embiid has on the basketball court.

The big man also added four assists, four blocks and one 3-pointer to his insane stat sheet. Plus, Embiid scored a career-high in points when it mattered most -- clutch time.

He may have a lot to say off the court, but Embiid certainly backs it up on a nightly basis. He's a complete fantasy stud and must be in your lineup every night he sees the floor.
