Last night, Joel “The Process” Embiid and Hassan Whiteside had a classic one-on-one battle inside of the 76ers vs. Heat game. Philly won 101-94, to continue their winning streak, while Miami stoops to new lows in the post-Wade era. The funniest moment of the night came after the game, when Embiid took to his Instagram, and posted this photo of the action, with the locaction listed “BBQ Chicken”.
In case you aren’t aware, Hall of Famer Shaq used to reference “BBQ Chicken” in his playing days when he roasted the opposing big man. To be fair, Whiteside did finish with 32 points and 13 rebounds in the defeat. “The Process” has quickly gone from a forgotten oft-injured draft pick to one of the most popular young stars in the league. It’s amazing what self-promotion and Instagram can do.
