What does Joel Embiid do when he's bored at practice?

CAMDEN, N.J. — Just when you thought you saw it all from Joel Embiid against the Pistons, he expanded his offensive game the next day at practice.

Embiid isn’t limited to just a basketball. He proved Tuesday he can score with an exercise ball as well.

The afternoon after posting a monster 30 points in the Sixers' first win of the season, Embiid did soccer-type footwork drills with a medicine ball. Then he shot the ball and managed to land it atop the rim.

At that point, there was nothing left to do but walk away in victory. 

Embiid grew up playing soccer. He attended an exhibition game in Wales prior to the  Champions League this past June, where he discussed his passion for the sport.

"I played futbol my whole life so [I play] whenever I get the chance. I got some skills," Embiid said at the time.

There’s nothing like taking the person you love to a baseball game on a sunny, 80-degree night in Philadelphia. Unless you just so happen to break up with that person, in public and loud enough for the entire Toronto Blue Jays bullpen to hear you.

Looks like you’ve got a chance to make up and get an outside opinion from several members of a professional baseball team!

If you happen to know this couple, let them know that the Blue Jays are looking for them and a happily-ever-after ending could still be in reach.

If not, there’s always "The Bachelor."

Where's Waldo?

How about Where's JoJo?

It's always awesome when Joel Embiid pops up around the city.

Let's be honest, it's hard to miss the Sixers' 7-foot-2 big man.

Like the time he was playing ball on the playground by Pat's and Geno's. Or the time he was just casually going for a run through the Philly streets.

Embiid was back at it Friday, hoopin' on the blacktop and dunking on a poor fella that had zero chance but gave good effort. According to the Twitter account @FeliciaRicci, who captured it all, the park was near Whole Foods on South St.

And later in the evening, Embiid was clearly tuning into Game 6 of the Cavaliers-Celtics Eastern Conference Finals series. He had some fun on Twitter, of course, stemming from a tweet he sent out earlier in the week.

Not a bad way to kick off the holiday weekend for Embiid.
