There was a moment early on in the 76ers season where Joel Embiid was opening our eyes with his immense talent. Brett Brown compared him to "Shaquille [O'Neal] with soccer feet."
Well, we finally got to see those soccer feet last night.
Embiid may have sat in the loss to the Bulls due to doctors and whatnot, but that didn't prevent him from entertaining us before the game with a little soccer action.
The soccer heads among you may recall when Embiid was kicking it with Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Javier Pastore during his rehab in Qatar.
Embiid famously played soccer and volleyball in his native Cameroon before picking up basketball later in his life. Some NBA opponents probably wish he stuck to footie.
