Cedric Maxwell on Celtics center dynamic against 76ers

Josue Pavon and Cedric Maxwell dish on a two-game skid against Indiana and Philadelphia last week, and how successful the Celtics front court can be.

Joel Embiid captivated the entire basketball world with his feud with Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley, followed by a bounce-back performance that landed the C’s with a 0-2 record against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Philly still has an odd combination of large bodies and centers sharing the court together, which has worked against smaller teams like Boston but overall has mixed results. Embiid, as the center of the team, hasn’t entered the MVP conversation in his young career.

Max provided his take on how Embiid can transcend from a great to elite player. He also dished his favorite destinations for all-star week vacations. All-star snubs never bother him — extra time off.
