Fortunately, he’s embracing the perfect one: The Process. 

Embiid has been saying “trust the process” in all of his interviews as well. The slogan is a reference to what Sixers fans created for the Sam Hinkie era, the team’s ex-general manager who had the vision to draft Embiid along with Dario Saric, Nerlens Noel, and Jahlil Okafor.
