It’s no secret that SHAquille O ‘Neal is a Curry fan, but now he seems to be turning his attention.Shaquille O ‘Neal recently praised Embiid on TNT, while also poking fun at Ben Simmons.In O ‘Neal’s view, true superstars take criticism and move on, and Embiid outshines Simmons in that regard.Earlier on TNT, O ‘Neal said he was rooting for Embiid to be named MVP this season simply because “he’s the most dominant player in the league right now.If a player with a better teammate and a better record comes up against Him for MVP, he wants embiid not to be overlooked.You can’t mention Embiid without Simmons.O ‘Neal also downplayed simmons, saying he doesn’t want to be with the Sixers. “Forget about him.”In a recent interview, O ‘Neal said that great players accept criticism, but they don’t let it stop them. They use it to keep going.”So another sixers player, I have no respect for him,” O ‘Neal said. “I just want to get rid of him.”O ‘Neal wouldn’t even call Simmons by name, calling him “Embiid’s weak partner.” The difference between him and Embiid is that Embiid takes criticism, doesn’t cry, and responds with his play.O ‘Neal recalled pointing a finger at Embiid’s nose, but Embiid didn’t complain, didn’t lose his temper, and even asked for a trade.Simmons, on the other hand, didn’t examine and improve his shooting flaws because the coach didn’t speak up for him after his team went out.Simmons has yet to start a game for the Sixers this season.But Embiid had an MVP-caliber performance as good as the 2020-21 season when he topped the list.Embiid has scored 20-plus points in 19 straight games, averaging 33.8 points, 10.5 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.6 blocks while shooting 54.1 percent overall and 35.9 percent from 3-point range for the 76ers (14-5).Embiid and Simmons, by contrast, are the ones to beat.While falling out with Simmons, the Sixers are glad they still have Embiid.(Supine/Maomao)
