PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Hat tip to Bill Simmons and The Ringer.
Simmons’ new website, theringer.com, put together an awesome new video tastefully mocking Sixers center Joel Embiid. Embiid, the team’s 2014 third overall pick, hasn’t played in the NBA yet due to foot injuries.
The video mocks the excitement for Embiid after some recent highlights of him were posted on social media.
“Joel Embiid is one of the bravest men probably on the face of the planet,” one of the analysts in the video said.
“I was watching when Kobe Bryant put up 81 against the Raptors. The most impressive thing I’ve ever seen on a basketball court? Joel Embiid Instagram video of him working out.”
Even Embiid loved it.
