Watch: Lyft Driver Spots Joel Embiid Going For A Night Jog In Philadelphia

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.

Check it out:

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.
