Joel Embiid is one of the finalists for the NBA MVP award this season after a tremendous 2021-22 campaign for the Philadelphia 76ers.

He, along with reigning NBA MVP Nikola Jokic and former MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo are vying for the award. Embiid is hoping to cement his status as the league's best player with a stellar post-season run.

Later this afternoon, he and the 76ers will face off against the Toronto Raptors. Philadelphia can close out the series with a win on Saturday afternoon.

It's been a big couple of years for Embiid, both on and off the floor.

Off the floor, the NBA star is dating model Anna de Paula. The happy couple welcomed their first child into the world, a son named Arthur.

She's a model from Brazil.

Embiid and company tip off against the Raptors at 2:00 p.m. ET on TNT.

Can the Sixers close out the series?
