Video: Joel Embiid Kicks It With PSG's Javier Pastore At Qatar Rehab Facility

That right foot looks pretty healthy.

It looks like Sixers center Joel Embiid has time for a little bit of fun in between his rehab sessions. Embiid returned to world renowned private hospital Aspetar in Qatar over a week ago to continue his training for the 2016-17 NBA season, and apparently ran into PSG midfielder Javier Pastore. Paris St. Germain has an agreement with Aspetar to be the official medical partner of the club until the end of next season. Seeing as how soccer was Embiid's first love, it was only right that the two kicked it around a little bit.

We've seen glimpses of his assorted athletic feats, but the right footed volley into the upper right corner of the net might be right up there with the between the legs dunk. That same right foot is also the one Embiid has had two surgeries on in two years, so it's nice to see him continue to progress.

UPDATE: The video has now been taken off Twitter, but courtesy of Derek Bodner, you can still watch it here.
