Joel Embiid jokes he’ll lose ’50 pounds’ because of bubble food
The biggest troll in the NBA is at it again, as Sixers big man Joel Embiid joked on social media that he’s going to lose “50 pounds” because of the bubble food down in Orlando, Florida.

The food in Orlando has been a hot topic ever since Denver Nuggets guard Troy Daniels took a picture of his meal.
While Embiid’s plate is much larger than Daniels’, that didn’t stop the Sixers star from having some fun at the expense of the NBA. It’s highly doubtful the players at Walt Disney World are going to get the same amount of calories they would normally receive if they were eating on their own.
Is the NBA going to be able to pull off the “bubble” games in its entirety? Only time will tell, but some players don’t believe that will be the case. Even Embiid himself has said he’s not a fan of the “bubble” idea.
Embiid and the Sixers will face the Indiana Pacers, San Antonio Spurs, Washington Wizards, Orlando Magic, Portland Trail Blazers, Phoenix Suns, Toronto Raptors and Houston Rockets in their eight seeing games before the 2020 playoffs start.
Embiid was averaging 23.4 points, 11.8 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 44 contests for the Sixers before games were suspended in March after Utah Jazz All-Star center Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19.
