Even Sam Hinkie is voting Joel Embiid into the All-Star Game

Tuesday January 10th, 2017

Like the rest of us, former Sixers GM Sam Hinkie is voting for Joel Embiid for the All-Star Game.

And Hinkie, who has been living in Silicon Valley since he left the Sixers in 2015, came through in support. Embiid just cannot miss.
