In Brooklyn he was talking about the « Scary Hours », but I say « Scary Minutes ». It is for the 48 minutes that we will spend together in the field. I am impatient, I must continue to play as I play and my teammates will follow me.
Joel Embiid no longer wants to hear about the « Scary Hours » of Brooklyn, in Philadelphia we must speak of the « Scary Minutes » to discuss his association with James Harden. And we have to admit that he is not wrong, since with his current form and the talent of the Barbu, the time is likely to be damn long for the opponents of the Sixers, who could quickly find themselves without a solution.
But be careful not to project yourself too much, everything can go very quickly in the NBA. James Harden, for example, had to destroy everything with the Nets, but injuries quickly got involved. And when you know the liabilities of the two Sixers All-Stars, it is better not to declare victory too soon…
James Harden therefore went from « Scary Hours » to « Scary Minutes », the new nickname found by Joel Embiid to define this All-Star duo. The pivot seems impatient to evolve with his new teammate, and this nickname proves that he believes in this association.
