Who is the best athlete in Philadelphia right now?
Joe DeCamara, Jon Ritchie and the 94WIP Morning Show have been discussing and debating this fun, tricky Philly bar topic for a little over a week now, stemming with this March 16th poll question.
As an aside, coming off of his historic five-home run World Baseball Classic performance, Trea Turner is certainly worthy enough to be included on this list.
But nevertheless, Embiid won the poll with 48-percent of the vote and I would agree with the fans. However, Ray Didinger disagreed.
Final Question of the Clip
"I would probably say Harper," Didinger said on Wednesday morning's 94WIP Morning Show. "I just thought the way, last year, down the stretch the way Harper played. He was just great. They don't get to the World Series without him and we still need to see Embiid do that. He's had a phenomenal regular season. I think he is the MVP of the NBA, I really do. But we haven't seen him put the team on his shoulders and take them to the top of the mountain, the way we saw Harper do it last year."
Certainly a fair point by The Godfather. Hopefully, Embiid can change that this Summer.
