The latest edition of Joel Embiid blocks a child's shot into the next millennium

Annual rites of summer here in the Philadelphia area: heading to your favorite shore point and buying things you'll never use again on the boardwalk, attempting to run on Kelly Drive in the oppressive heat before finding a better idea and Joel Embiid swatting a small child's shot into oblivion.

The latest installment of JoJo's tough love comes via a post on his Instagram page from Friday.

Watch above as a jubilant youngster attempts a reverse layup in the JoJo's paint and beautifully cruel destiny comes to life.

The caption says it all, ladies and gents.

Congrats to this kid, the latest Philadelphia-area youth to earn a master's degree from The Process' School of Hard Knocks.
