Watch: Joel Embiid tries afternoon tea and crumpets to celebrate London game

Watch: Joel Embiid tries afternoon tea and crumpets to celebrate London game

Joel Embiid is a very large human being so watching him drink out of a tiny little tea cup and eat a tiny little crumpet is quite the sight.

JoJo sat down with former Penn State basketball star and current broadcaster over in Europe John Amaechi for afternoon tea and cakes.

The NBA posted video of their afternoon tea session to help promote the game the Sixers will play against the Boston Celtics in January in London

"I think it's great for the game to actually play a game [in London]. It shows you that the NBA is willing to come and grow this game," Embiid says of the NBA playing a game overseas.

That's all fine and nice but simply watching Embiid drink tea for basically the first time is pretty hilarious. He tries some regular old tea at first and determines it needs some sugar. Being such a big man, JoJo doesn't simply put one sugar cube into his tea. No, Embiid puts like 8 cubes in and that makes the tea more agreeable to him.

Asked about LeBron James after Sixers game, Kyrie Irving says @*#^*!#%&*

Apparently, Kyrie Irving doesn't want to talk about LeBron James.

After the Celtics' win over the Sixers on Friday, a fan asked Irving, "Where's LeBron?"

Irving's response ... NSFW ...

WARNING: The video contains offensive language. But if that kind of thing doesn't bother you, you can watch it here.

Irving was asked about the incident by reporters Saturday.

So what he's basically saying is "sorry, not sorry."

With the video circulating on social media, expect Irving to hear from the league.

Joel Embiid expects 90 percent of his tweets to go viral

One of the things that I love about Joel Embiid is the fact that it seems like every day we find another reason to love him even more.

Today's entry comes from a profile in GQ magazine in which he talks about plenty of things. But it was one of the first things he was asked about his Twitter account that had me rolling once again.

How do you find out if one of [your tweet] has gone viral, then?

Joel: I think 90 percent of them [will be viral]. That’s the expectation.

Amazing. The thing is, I don't know if he's giving himself enough credit. ONLY 90%????

Oh, and he subscribes to the Jah Rule school of thought: WHO CARES?

"Then I had so much time, too, because I missed that whole year and the second year after, so I didn’t have anything to do," Embiid said. "[I’d] just go on social media and converse with fans, make crazy jokes, and tweet crazy stuff because I don’t care. I say whatever I want to."

His critique of other players' boring Twitter accounts is also incredibly on point:

What do you mean some guys are always tweeting the same thing?

Joel: Bullshit like, “Game Day!” “It’s a great game.” I don’t know. They’re all the same. It’s boring.

Amen.

The whole Q&A is worth any Sixers fan's time just to get to know a little more about Jojo. Be happy he's ours. And pray he stays healthy so he can take his game on the court to the same level as his game off of it.
