Actor Michael B. Jordan said earlier Friday night during the Philadelphia 76ers' game that he would love to team up with star Joel Embiid — in a movie, that is. In fact, Jordan even has a particular concept in mind for a possible partnership with the Sixers big man.
Michael B. Jordan says during an intermission interview if he had to choose between all-time Sixers players, he would most like to star in a buddy cop movie with Joel Embiid. Make it happen, Hollywood

Now, Embiid as an actor? A lot of people would pay money to see him star in a movie. Joel Embiid definitely has a personality that a lot of players in the league do not have. We see him shine through during interviews and on social media, not just on the court.
We've seen him take jabs at stars like Andre Drummond and others in a funny way. It is just the way he is, whether people like him or not.
Embiid is one of two cornerstones of the Sixers franchise. Since being healthy, he has brought the Sixers back to relevance and a place where free agents would like to play at.
Joel Embiid is arguably having his best season as a pro. In his first 12 games, Embiid has averaged 27.7 points, 12.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.3 blocks per game. All are career-highs except for the blocks.
Many NBA stars have appeared in movies or on television shows. It is pretty common now for players to do both of these with the league seeing its business side boom considerably.
Would Joel Embiid take the offer by Jordan if given a chance to star in a movie? That isn't known as of now, but with his personality, it's expected that he would more than likely be willing to star in a movie with the popular actor.
