Joel Embiid turned 100 on Saturday. One hundred regular-season games, that is. So what if it took three years?

It's not worth much right now, but his scoring average actually is higher than the averages after 100 games of LeBron James, Larry Bird, and Bill Cartwright. Yeah, Bill Cartwright. Here's a look at where Embiid stands at the century mark.
