Here’s Joel Embiid Playing Poker in Milwaukee

Kyle Scott - February 22, 2020

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.

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.

Underachieving: Sixers, Joel Embiid Are Far Behind Preseason Forecast

Russ Joy - February 11, 2020

While the Sixers, who are currently in a disappointing fifth place in the Eastern Conference, are likely trying to put out any PR fires set by Joel Embiid’s Harvey Dent Instagram post, we thought it would be interesting to take a look at just how far the team has fallen compared to their preseason odds. To take it a step further, we looked at Joel Embiid’s preseason MVP odds, just to see how The Process has fared thus far. In what will likely come as no surprise, it isn’t great.

Joel Embiid on Instagram: “You Either Die a Hero or Live Long Enough to See Yourself Become the Villain”

Russ Joy - February 10, 2020

This isn’t great. Joel Embiid took to Instagram Monday night and dropped a Harvey Dent quote from The Dark Knight:

Perhaps to soften the blow, he included “#TheProcess” and make the location “All Love”. But still, this isn’t the kind of thing that’ll endear himself to fans who openly complained about shushing the Wells Fargo Center faithful, including telling someone -he said himself- to “shut the f*** up.” To make matters worse (?) former Sixer and friend of Embiid, Jimmy Butler responded to the post leading to this exchange:

Not great. Is it a huge troll job? Maybe. Are we seeing the downfall of the process, where Embiid demands a trade to Miami? Doubtful. Hopefully doubtful.
