Joel Embiid can drink a lot of soda. Specifically, Shirley Temples.
Embiid made a guest appearance on the Vice Sports Ride Along series to talk about his frustrations dealing with injuries and just how horribly a basketball player he used to be. He also happened to mention how many Shirley Temples he drinks each day. According to Embiid, it’s about 3-4 pitchers.
“I usually drink three or four pitchers per day,” Embiid said. “Nobody really cares about the media. They're gonna have something to say – 300 pounds or Shirley Temples. I'm just gonna let my game do the talking. I think some people are gonna be surprised, and I can't wait to show off.”
