The gleefully-charming Joel Embiid’s candidacy for a starting nod on the Eastern Conference All-Stars may have just ended, with the news coming from the mouth of a superstar that alternates between sourpuss and sweet. “I can’t tell you who’s on the list, because now we’ve got to work on our reserves,” Barkley said.

The temptation with the Milwaukee Bucks is to confuse their ascent with their arrival, and every so often their inconsistent play offers a reminder of the difficulties of becoming an established contender. With their 113-104 home loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday, the Bucks (20-20) dropped their second consecutive game and slipped to .500. Milwaukee had won in San Antonio six days earlier and followed that triumph with a convincing victory over the Miami Heat to move two games above .500 for the fifth time this season.

Joel Embiid can only hope he has done enough to earn a spot in the NBA All-Star Game. Certainly the Philadelphia 76ers' first-year center has done enough to make himself the odds-on favorite to earn the Rookie of the Year award, while awakening a slumbering team. Heading into Wednesday's home game against the Toronto Raptors, he leads all rookies -- as well as his team -- in scoring (19.7), rebounding (7.7) and blocked shots (2.4).

Jahlil Okafor has recently become the odd man out of the Philadelphia 76ers’ frontcourt rotation. With potential All-Star Joel Embiid now firmly entrenched as Philly’s top center, and once-excised defensive stud Nerlens Noel back in the fold and happy with his role (for now, at least), Okafor has found himself parked on the bench, not seeing any action in four of the Sixers’ last five games entering Saturday, and playing just 10 minutes in his lone appearance during that stretch. The 21-year-old got his shot at extended minutes on Saturday, as head coach Brett Brown elected to start Okafor against the Washington Wizards with Embiid resting as the 76ers were on the second night of a back-to-back set as part of his ongoing management plan after missing more than two years with multiple foot injuries.

Nerlens Noel likes his role … for now. The Philadelphia 76ers encountered a controversy in December when center Nerlens Noel, a restricted free agent after this season, was taken out of the rotation shortly after his return from injury. The logic was clear — ex-general manager Sam Hinkie’s decision to select a center with the team’s top draft pick for three straight years had created a logjam at the position, and one of Noel, Jahlil Okafor, and overwhelming Rookie of the Year favorite Joel Embiid was going to have to lose minutes.
