Joel Embiid runs Philadelphia ... literally

There are certain things you expect to see at a traffic light in Philadelphia.

SEPTA buses, food carts, people on bicycles/skateboards/dirt bikes and … NBA centers working on their cardio.

That was the case on Monday night as a Lyft driver caught Sixers center Joel Embiid jogging through the Philly streets.

Per the video (via Sports Illustrated), the driver was sitting at a red light in the city when a large man in basketball gear came running by with another individual. At the same moment, the driver received a request for a ride that took him in the direction of the runners. 

When the car caught back up with the pair, the driver’s suspicions were confirmed when he saw a person in a pickup truck driving alongside the runners and having a conversation with the big man.

Without the angle to get over, the Lyft driver could only blurt out the first thing that came to mind, “Yo, trust the process. I love you.”

Embiid acknowledged the driver by raising his hands in the air as he continued his run.

Basketball never stops and neither does the process.
