Sixers' Embiid, Simmons eager to prove doubters wrong

CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) The chips on the shoulders of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons have not softened over the offseason.

Both players are eager to prove doubters wrong.

"I've seen what everybody's said on Twitter," Embiid said Monday when the Philadelphia 76ers held their media day. "It doesn't bother me. I love it, I love critics and it just makes me better. I love seeing people say I can't do this and I'm going to go out there and work on it and come back the next game or whenever I can and show that I can do this."
