Kevin is a big optics guy, and so if the Sixers get blown out tonight, the video of Joel Embiid at a Wisconsin casino won’t age well (even if we generally embraced Allen Iverson for this sort of thing— did I mention I once played Roulette with him?).
But we’ll just present this video of Joel Embiid, apparently playing poker, without context. Partly because none is provided.
Embiid getting after it at the Milwaukee casino last night.
Sixers are +8.5 against the Bucks tonight.

Barstool Sportsbook’s tipster doesn’t give time and place. But if you want to roll with their implication of fading the underdog Sixers tonight at +8.5, well, then let us recommend FanDuel Sportsbook, which is currently offering the Sixers at +42.5 odds as part of a promotion. Joel can’t place that bet, but you can right here.
And that, folks, is called content marketing.
