Is Philadelphia 76ers star big man Joel Embiid the biggest threat to the Boston Celtics in the 2023 Eastern Conference Playoffs? The consensus seems to position Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks in that role, but Embiid and the Sixers have come on strong late in the 2022-23 regular season.

And while it is fair to note that the Celtics did not play Philly the way they usually do the last time the two ball clubs met and had a number of key players out as well, it was the Sixers who came away with a win in the end.

Could the Celtics be making a mistake if they don’t give Philly the same level of respect that they are expected to direct toward the Bucks?
