"I mean the play unfolded, and I mean the refs, they had a great game, I thought they were great tonight", Embiid said. The center recalled the conversations while speaking to the media afterward.

Speaking about a moment where Simmons approached him with his empty hands, Embiid said: "He was like "there's going to be a lot of rings on these". And going into the playoffs we felt like we had a really good chance, especially after winning 16 in a row (to close the regular season). Redick was a stable veteran in the rotation and provided helpful floor spacing that helped Embiid and Simmons thrive. "But we definitely have more to show".

I don't want to offend any of the other places I have been, or teams I have been on but this was probably my favorite year of my career.

"We feel like when everybody's on we're unbeatable", the always self-assured Embiid shared. "So, second series and I'm learning, there's a lot of things I learned this series that I didn't against Miami so that makes me a better player, so I'm grateful for those opportunities". "We've got to learn from it", Embiid added.

Despite losing to an injury-riddled Celtics team in five games, the Sixers' young stars were optimistic about their future during the post-game press conference. "I feel like I had a lot more to go", he said.

A year later, having helped the Sixers significantly further that process with a run to the Eastern Conference semifinals, the veteran sharpshooter indicated that he hopes to remain in Philadelphia in the future.
