Think a fine and public platform would make Joel Embiid regret his LaVar Ball comment?
Yeah, think again. "The Process" has no regrets.
If you don't know the little feud between Embiid and Ball, here's the latest and how it came to be. And here was Embiid's quick but sharp jab at Ball.
Which brings us to Thursday.
Speaking on the Variety Sports & Entertainment Summit, Embiid backed his remark and did so in his own natural, humorous fashion when asked about it and the subsequent fine.
(Warning: Profane language is used in the wording of this tweet.)
I just got fined — thank you — for saying something that … I think most people have been wanting to say that. I guess I was the guy to say that and I'm glad I said it.
Embiid then expanded a little further.
Let the Embiid-Ball drama continue.
Philadelpha 76ers fan Kevin Hart has a new-ish YouTube show he's calling "Called As Balls." The premise is pretty simple: he and a guest take an ice bath and chill.
Previous guests have included Draymond Green, Blake Griffin, LaVar Ball, and Candace Parker.
Hart just so happens to have former Sixer and current Dallas Maverick Nerlens Noel on as his guest this week.
Aside from making fun of the locker room in Philly, Hart also takes a jab at Joel Embiid. Hart does a decent-enough Embiid impression with a "Trust the Process" but he also mocks the way Embiid speaks. Not cool.
Look for that around the 6-minute mark.
Nerlens also says Dirk Nowitski is just as funny as Hart. I'd believe it.
What goes around comes around, at least for some charitable Eagles fans.
Some good karma has found its way to particular Eagles fans, courtesy of the Minnesota Vikings Foundation. Fans who donated to head coach Mike Zimmer’s foundation to apologize for some of Philadelphia’s rowdy behavior before, during and after the NFC Championship Game have received a special memento from U.S Bank Stadium.
Eagles fans were gifted a jar of the historic confetti that streamed down onto the newly-crowned Super Bowl Champions at the Vikings’ home field on Feb. 4 and a thank you note acknowledging their contribution to the organization.
Check out Reddit user EYEsoar’s photo for proof.
While it may not be enough for fans to perform their own Jalen Mills-style confetti angels, these generous Eagles fans will hold a piece of Philadelphia history.
The donation from Eagles fans now total more than $18,000 as of Jan. 26, according to the ZimFoundation Twitter page and we can only imagine this total will grow.
It pays to be nice.
