Sixers News: Joel Embiid spent Monday night roasting detractors of The Process

Fall back, haters.

NBA: Houston Rockets at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Some of you may have heard about a small thing called Retweet Armageddon that went down today after the Markelle Fultz trade was completed. There were countless bad takes regurgitated into the ether, and a certain seven-foot center just couldn’t resist joining the action.

Roasting Howard Eskin is is definitive proof that he really is one of us.

Embiid also took exception to a claim from Bucks owner Wes Edens, who says his franchise is more focused on results than process. The Process himself clapped back.

I would not trade Embiid for anything or anyone in the world. He’s a franchise-changing talent, an elite shit-talker, legitimately funny, and keenly aware of the ins and outs of social media. There are plenty of guys who attempt to be part of a joke as it’s happening, but few are savvy enough to pull it off.

For the love of all things sacred, please let this kid stay healthy. The sports world—and especially Philadelphia—needs this.
