Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid were teammates at Kansas who went No. 1 and No. 3 in the 2014 draft — then have not played one game against each other in the NBA. Foot injuries have sidelined Embiid for two full seasons, he finally has gotten on the court a little this preseason.
Embiid already has a target on his back — Wiggins wants to dunk on him. From an interview on Fox Sports where Wiggins was asked who he wants to posterize:
My boy JoJo Embiid from the Sixers. I never got him (as teammates) in college; time to get him now.
If it does happen, the Sixers may be okay with it — that means Embiid is healthy, playing, and trying to protect the rim.
