Sixers Center Joel Embiid Announces Jersey Number

Former Kansas center Joel Embiid has been endearing himself on Twitter to Sixers fans ever since being drafted by the team at No. 3 overall last Thursday, and today he announced to the world what jersey number he will be wearing in Philly:

Embiid becomes the 26th player in team history to wear No. 11. Notable names include Caldwell Jones, Bob McAdoo, Manute Bol, and Jrue Holiday. Point guard Eric Maynor wore it this past season.

Let’s hope Embiid can surpass all of them on his way to greatness. Unfortunately, it is possible Sixers fans will not see the No. 11 jersey in action this season as it is expected that Embiid will miss much of if not all of the 2014-2015 campaign.
