76ers: 2 Reasons Not To Break Up Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons

Here we go again. The moment a team goes through some sort of struggle, the media smells blood. The Philadelphia 76ers are not where most analysts and fans figured they would be and are beginning to wonder if the team needs a fresh start. What they’re really asking is who should be traded, Ben Simmons or Joel Embiid?

Each season teams hit the trade deadline and offseason searching for the perfect amount of chemistry that it takes to win a championship. Often times, they miss. However, there are exceptions where you can see the greatness coming but it just takes time. This is what the 76ers have with the Simmons and Embiid pairing. Just think, for all they have accomplished, they’ve only played two full seasons together. Let that sink in.

Look how long it took the Golden State Warriors to get their title as a unit. As great as Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were as a duo, they never won a title. The same goes for Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. And to go back farther, how many years before Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen won theirs?

Here are 2 reasons why the Philadelphia 76ers should not break up Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.
