Joel Embiid Is Following the Same Career Path as Hall of Fame Center Bill Walton

For the third time in four postseasons, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid will miss at least one game due to injury. Embiid will not play in Game 5 of Philadelphia’s series with the Washington Wizards with a torn meniscus in his right knee. His status is unknown beyond Game 5. But it’s another health-related speed bump in a career that has been replete with them. It’s not unfair to compare Embiid with another massively talented but immensely fragile big man, Hall of Famer Bill Walton.

The Boston Celtics-Los Angeles Lakers rivalry has cooled in recent years, but it's still hard to argue against it being the best rivalry in sports. The history between the two legendary franchises simply can't be topped. That especially goes for the 1980s, when Larry Bird's Celtics would do battle with Magic Johnson's "Showtime" Lakers. Bill Walton was a part of it during his brief stint in Boston and fondly remembers just how different NBA rivalries were then compared to today.
