Joel Embiid misinterprets ESPN graphic to be hating on 76ers

After failing to play a single game in his first two years in the NBA, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid finally made his debut this past season, and gave the team’s fans a lot of optimism for their future. However, the injuries he suffered and long recovery still haunts him, and is even brought up during broadcasts from time to time. As expected, he isn’t comfortable with it.

During the Summer League match between the Sixers and Golden State Warriors on Saturday, an ESPN was graphic was shown where it reminded the viewers that he and some of his team’s top picks the past few years missed a lot of games. The 23-year-old Kansas product did not take things lightly and took to his Twitter account to let everyone know what he feels about it.

Embiid then posted another tweet, referencing to U.S. Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway’s now infamous phrase where she defended White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s statement about the attendance numbers during Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Although Embiid may have misinterpreted the graphic, it also shows how much he wants the fans to move on from the two seasons he was forced to sit out. Now with Markelle Fultz and J.J. Redick added to their core, it’s exciting times for the Philly faithful once again, as their team will look to make it back to the playoffs, and for Embiid to prove to his doubters that he can remain healthy throughout  a whole season.
