The Sixers’ star, Joel Embiid, has once again been overlooked. On this episode of the Sixer Sense Podcast, we devote a good portion of our discussion to the results of the All NBA Teams voting and its process.

We compare Embiid’s status and production against other players who we think did not deserve a spot on the first team more than the league MVP runner-up. We also talk about other NBA stars who should have made one of the All-NBA Teams but did not.

With an important summer ahead, what are the priorities for Sixers management?

Then, we pivot to a more positive subject matter as we reflect on any good that came from last season. Although the Sixers were eliminated in the second round again in the postseason, certain players made leaps and demonstrated improvement in a number of areas. We bring up Tyrese Maxey’s emergence as a second-year player and Joel Embiid’s prolific scoring output the entire season.

Next, the podcast dives into the biggest challenges that the coaches and upper management face this offseason. We analyze the roster and debate which players should stay or go before the start of the season. Starters are mentioned, but there is lengthy conversation about bench players who we believe deserve more time or a lesser role. Who thinks Shake Milton needs a more definitive role? Who mentions Paul Reed boosting his playing time? Listen and find out!

We finish the podcast with a summary of how the conference finals are going for the four remaining teams. We offer opinions on the Mavs/Warriors and Celtics/Heat series.
