Joel Embiid appears to be his own harshest critic, claiming he "sucks" and describing his performances as "trash" after a tough outing.

I've been so trash! - Sixers star Embiid unhappy with recent performances


Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid is undeniably one of the top talents in the NBA, but he does not believe he has shown it in recent games.

Although only Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant has more points than Embiid in the league this season, he contributed just 10 as the Sixers went down 113-102 to the high-flying Toronto Raptors on Wednesday.

And reflecting on his performance against the Raptors, Embiid was his own toughest critic, telling reporters: "I suck. I wasn't making anything.

"In fact, in the past few games, I've been so trash. I have got to figure that part out if I want to help the team win some games."

However, Philly coach Brett Brown believes Toronto deserve credit for restricting Embiid to a season-low 10 points.

"[The Raptors] did a good job of going after him, double-teaming him," Brown said. "That's part of it. He's that good."
