NBA Analyst Greg Anthony Says Joel Embiid Should Stay In School

Greg Anthony believes Joel Embiid should stay in school.

Joel Embiid is the golden prize of the upcoming NBA draft. Many executives, scouts and draft experts believe the 7-footer will be the top pick.

NBA analyst Greg Anthony believes the freshmen phenom should stay in school.

“The guy I would hope wouldn’t come out would be Embiid because I don’t think he’s ready, I don’t think he’s polished enough,” Anthony told Thursday night at Madison Square Garden where he was doing the Cavaliers-Knicks game.

“[His] instincts aren’t where you want them to be. At this level, they don’t teach, they coach.”

If Embiid indeed returns, Kansas would have a frontcourt of him and McDonald’s All-American Cliff Alexander.
