Joel Embiid is basically Rocky now.
Just like Rocky Balboa, 76ers big man Joel Embiid was spotted running through the streets of Philadelphia on Monday night.
A lucky Lyft driver happened to catch the 7-footer jogging along the city streets, and fortunately for all of us, he had a dash cam running so that we could experience the moment with him.
His narration of the story is pretty awesome.

Embiid even threw his hands in the air just like Rocky!
Look, the 76ers have been dreadful for about as long as I can remember, but if Embiid is healthy enough to be training outside of practice, then I’m all in on this young squad. You gotta trust the process, I suppose.
