Poor Joel Embiid, the NBA Draft just isn’t for him. First, his shot at being No. 1 was derailed by a foot injury. And then he was screwed by the tape delay when drafted by the Sixers. Cameras caught Embiid sitting stoically after being selected, only it was a delayed footage.
The situation was exacerbated by Bill Simmons, who pointed out what most of America was thinking.
It was so noticeable that the Sixers had to get his back.
Tape delay, guys… — Philadelphia 76ers (@Sixers) June 26, 2014
And Embiid had to reiterate.
I blame the Illuminati.
*UPDATE* Shortly after Embiid tweeted out a photo of his real draft face.
