Joel Embiid Stops by Park to Savagely Block Kids Trying to Shoot Layups (Video)

Joel Embiid Denies Kid

You have to love Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid. The guy is one of the most entertaining players in the NBA, and he hardly ever plays any games. Whether it’s firing off savage tweets, or talking ridiculous trash, or interacting with his fans, or trying to score a date with Rihanna, Embiid always has something going on.

On Tuesday Embiid was driving by a park in Philly when he saw some kids playing basketball and decided to join them. Unfortunately for the kids, the oft-injured seven-footer doesn’t believe in participation trophies. When he plays—which, again, is seldom—he plays to win. And if that means ruthlesslessly blocking some kid’s attempt at a layup, so be it.

Take a look:

Saw kids playing at the park while we were driving so I had to stop to teach them how to trust the process….. Nobody gets in my paint ha #TheProcess

Even if Embiid never really pans out for the Sixers as a player, he’s been totally worth a the no. 3 overall pick just for the joy he’s brought fans off the court.

That said, I’m sure Sixers fans are really hoping to see Embiid do that to guys like Isaiah Thomas and Kyrie Irving next year.
