We can all argue that there are other players worthy of the spot, probably other big men better than him but no one else can do this. Joel Embiid making some noise not only because he is playing tremendously, certainly not because his team is doing well but also because he is an entertainer and he got that quality that people want to see and follow, He is a darn charismatic player. NBA All-star is for the fans and I can already imagine how much fun it would be with him participating. He got my vote for the all-star.
