Joel Embiid has made 15 of his 30 three-point field goal attempts so far this season and he was asked if he'd have interest in competing in the three-point contest during All-Star weekend.
“It would be nice,” Embiid said with a smile. “It would be nice. I don’t know.”
In the three-point contest, participants have one minute to make as many shots as possible from five positions behind the arc.
“If I have a chance to be in it, I have to practice all that,” Embiid said of getting shots up quickly.” But I think I can get it. I got to work on my quick release and you know most of the shots I take from three, I always hold my follow through.
“So in an all-star game, it’s about getting it up. So I have work on that.”
