Embiid, the first Michael Jordan Trophy winner, was selected as the regular league MVP

Joel Embiid (29) got the MVP trophy he wanted so much.

According to what the NBA Secretariat announced on the morning of the 3rd (Korean time), the regular league MVP for the 2022-23 season is Embiid.

Embiid finally won his first Michael Jordan trophy, beating back-to-back MVP honors of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nicola Jokic.

Embiid, who finished second behind Jokic over the past two seasons, received 73 first-place votes and an overall score of 915 from a 100-member media voting panel. Jokic scored 15 first place votes and a total of 674 points. Antetokounmpo finished third with 12 votes and a total score of 606. Boston Celtics ace Jayson Tatum took 4th place in the MVP vote, followed by Shai Gilgeous-Alexanda, who led the Oklahoma City Thunder sensation, ranked 5th.

Embiid led the team in scoring for the second year in a row with an average of 33.1 points per game this season, the highest from a center position since Bob McAdoo averaged 34.5 points per game in 1975. Above all, he set excellent records in the shooting category with a field goal success rate of 54.8% (20.1 attempts), a three-point success rate of 33% (three attempts), and a free throw success rate of 85.7% (11.7 attempts). He added 10.2 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 2.7 hustle figures (steals + blocks) while playing an average of 34.6 minutes per game.

Embiid has won 43 games while on the court, leading the team with an offensive rating of 119 and second with a defense rating of 110.2.

Born in Cameroon, Embiid has risen to the MVP ranks as the African-born player since Hakeem Olajuwon. He became the sixth non-American to be honored with MVP honors, following Yokichi, Adetokounmpo, Steve Nash, Olajuwon and Dirk Nowitzki.토토사이트

Meanwhile, Embiid led the regular season for the Philadelphia 76ers as the No. 3 seed.

Embiid then pulled off a 4-0 sweep of the sixth-seeded Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the playoffs. However, he missed Game 4 in Brooklyn and Game 1 of the second round of the playoffs against Boston, which was won amidst James Harden’s amazing performance. In addition, in the second leg, the appearance of the game is in doubt.
