Embiid addressed the backlash on Tuesday after helping the 76ers past the Los Angeles Clippers 110-103 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. If I can take it then you can too.

Joel Embiid trade rumors are in full swing even after one week of National Basketball Association trade deadline getting over and it will rise further if Philadelphia 76ers are not able to improve their performance.

The Philadelphia 76ers have done little to convince other teams (or their fans) that they're a force to be reckoned with, excelling at home, but struggling greatly at home.

Tensions have been high in Philadelphia for the past few weeks, as the 76ers lost four straight games including falling to the hapless Atlanta Hawks starting in late January.

Clearly Embiid seems to think he is becoming the villain.

But he really ruffled feathers earlier in the week via a cryptic Instagram post, in which Jimmy Butler essentially recruited him to the Heat, with Embiid even going along with it.

Embiid is an excellent defensive player with an average of 24.0 points, 11.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.8 blocks per game and Philadelphia 76ers doesn't need that over Simmons shooting 3-pointers. "I love my city. We go through ups and downs".

Joel Embiid is apparently being booed off by the 76ers crowd as they are blaming him for the team dropping to No. 5 seed in NBA Eastern Conference.

"I understand where that comes from, but then again, if you dish it, you gotta be able to take it back". But at the end of the day, like I said in my location last night, it's all love. I can't wait for the future, especially this year.

The Sixers now sit at fifth in the Eastern Conference standings with a 34-21 record.

The Sixers have done their utmost to load up this team with stars, giving up on them after less than a year seems more like a death note for Elton Brand's time as general manager.
