Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons have always expressed their will to play and win together, despite many people being sceptical around their on-court fit.

Embiid talked on playing with Simmons and expressed his belief that they have not reached their full potential yet.

“I love him and I want to be with him for the rest of my career, because I think he still has a lot of potential, and me too,” Embiid said during an appearance on the Rights to Ricky Sanchez podcast, via CBS Sports.

“We can get so much better than we are right now. I don’t see the point of ever playing with somebody else. So, that’s someone that I’d love to be playing with for the rest of my career.” 

Both Simmons and Embiid can produce on better terms in the paint with the All-Star center passing a good amount of time in the three-point line, due to Simmons’ inability to convert threes during the two seasons they have played together so far.
