I sat on this post for 24 hours to wait and see if my anger / extreme disappointment with the 76ers franchise and their continued silence on the Joel Embiid surgery front would subside. Needless to say it has not, so it’s time for a rant.
On Tuesday fellow Philadunkia scribe Michael Kaskey-Blomain authored a well crafted post on the questions created by the delays in Joel Embiid’s foot surgery and the 76ers’ silence on said delays. MKB’s post did a solid job of summing up my frustration with this on going drama.
Yesterday, John Gonzalez of CSNphilly.com posted an article that provided some clarity (but nothing concrete) on the reasons for the delays in Embiid’s pending surgery. The article cited “sources” as providing Gonzalez with inside details on why Embiid’s surgery has not happened yet.
Of course the 76ers still have yet to issue an official comment on Gonzaleez’s post, or the delay in general which by the way has now reached to 30 days.
