The NBA announced their players of the month for December. Donovan Mitchell took home the honor for the Western Conference. And Joel Embiid was the winner for the Eastern Conference.

Embiid is VERY deserving of the honor. Averaging 29.2 PPG, 11.2 RPG, and 3.9 APG. He is back to where he belongs; in the MVP conversation. He’s already working on his candidacy for January. He kicked off 2021 with a beat down of the Houston Rockets that saw him get his 3rd career triple double. The big man went off for 31-15-10

The next time you will get a chance to see this unicorn will be Wednesday night when the Sixers take on the Magic. A game you can hear right here on 97.5 the Fanatic.
