2014 Top NBA Draft Prospects

3. Joel Embiid

Joel Embiid is a 7’0″ center from the University of Kansas with the most potential in this year’s draft. Embiid would have, more than likey, went number one if it weren’t for a foot injury. Embiid has gained 15 pounds, so he is now up to 265. This is good for Embiid, as teams were hoping he’d gain some weight. During his freshmen season at Kansas, Embiid averaged 11.2 points (on 62.6% shooting), 8.1 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks per game. He did this while only playing 23 minutes per game! As the season went on, he got better. Teams feared him more and more. Embiid also shot 68.5% from the free throw line, which is pretty good for a 7 footer, especially for one who started playing basketball at the age of 16! Embiid has also had a ton of compliments on his foot work. Some people say it’s the best foot work they’ve ever seen on a 7 footer. Embiid’s outside shot is also pretty good, and it will only continue to get better. This guy just started playing basketball and he is already doing amazing things. Imagine how great he would be if he played basketball for his entire life like the rest of the people on this list! Franchise centers are a rare thing nowadays, and Embiid has all the tools and upside to be the next great center in this league. I really don’t think his foot injury will end up holding him back, but the fact that it could end up hurting his career is why I have him number 3 on this list.
