Karl-Anthony Towns pokes fun at Joel Embiid, says he 'trusts the process' in NBA2K

Karl-Anthony Towns pokes fun at Joel Embiid, says he 'trusts the process' in NBA2K

Joel Embiid made waves on Tuesday for being very displeased with his lower-than-he-wanted player rating in the forthcoming NBA2K video game.

Jojo thought he shouldn't have been rated anything less than a 95. He was nowhere near that and rather shocked.

Another NBA big man was given his score Tuesday and was a bit more pleased.

Karl-Anthony Towns predicted a slight improvement over his 88 rating from last season and he was on point.

After being told he received a player rating of 91 this season, Towns said "I can't wait to tell Joel I've got nothing to complain about. I do trust the process on that one. I do trust the process."

And Embiid's oversized influence on the game continues.

Nolan Patrick shows his wizardry with through-the-legs pass for goal

We've heard so much about Nolan Patrick's vision and passing ability.

Now we know why.

Patrick on Tuesday delivered the first jaw-dropping highlight of his NHL career when he slickly dropped a pass through his legs for a trailing Dale Weise, who finished the play with the Flyers' fourth second-period goal of the night.

You can watch the play in the video above … and just, wow.

Patrick, only 19 years old, does it so naturally and without even looking — at all — in Weise's direction.

Some Flyers were seen on the bench smiling in amazement of the teenager.

And it probably won't be the only time.

Joel Embiid explains the reasoning behind his wild new hairstyle

Joel Embiid said plenty with his words on Tuesday afternoon when he called the decision to have a minutes restriction in the teens to begin the season "f-----g BS."

He also sent a message with his fresh new look.

Jojo showed up to practice on the eve of the Sixers' season with a new hairstyle -- some cornrows remeniscent of the last great Sixer to captivate the city of Philadelphia.

No, not Andrew Bynum.

We're talking about Allen Iverson.

"I had the old hairstyle for a long time so I just wanted something new," Embiid said. "I know my mom won't be happy but it's only for a couple of days."

Robert Covington saw a resemblance, "Everybody was shocked. Told him he’s going to be the new AI.”

Was he inspired by somebody? Anybody?

"I just wanted something new, something crazy. I never do anything crazy, so..."

"I think it looks OK," Embiid said, always his toughest critic.
