Celtics’ Jayson Tatum Defends Sixers’ Joel Embiid After All-NBA Results

On Tuesday evening, the NBA released the results of the All-NBA team voting. As expected, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid was not named the first-team center winner as league MVP Nikola Jokic took that spot for the second year in a row.

Although Embiid could have earned first-team honors as a forward, Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo swept everyone to first place with 100 votes. Meanwhile, Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum held an advantage over Embiid and was named to the first team.

Although Embiid was the first center to lead the NBA in points since 2000 and finished second in the race for the league’s Most Valuable Player award, Embiid was named a second All-NBA team.
