Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid has some competition, but it’s not what you may be thinking.

Embiid is enjoying his rookie season and has been performing well above expectations.

He also decided to give himself a nickname, “The Process” attributed to a motto used by ex-GM Sam Hinkie.

Teammate Nik Stauskas’ dad Joel spoke on the Sauce and Co. podcast and has come to set the record straight.

Joel says Embiid hijacked his self-proclaimed nickname, and he has something to say about it.

“Speaking of Joel, I have a fun fact for your audience here. I have to give him a new moniker. He doesn’t exactly have a new one yet but…

“The Process’ has already been taken. In 2013 there was a documentary made about Nik called ‘Nik Stauskas: The Process.’ So if Embiid wants to continue using that, I’m afraid he’s going to have to pay a royalty.”

Nik was not shy about claiming his stake joined in and jokingly agreed with his dad.

“If this does blow up, there may be some royalty fees he owes me. I’ll have to bring that up to Joe.”

When digging into the back story a little, you can search for Nik Stauskas The Process and actually find an old documentary from a few years ago.
