After injuries and recovery setbacks, Joel Embiid finally made his NBA debut with the Sixers in the 2016-17 season. Like his career, his shoe choices go against the grain. This season, “The Process” been showcasing the budget adidas Mad Bounce, while last year he was one of the few NBAers to wear the adidas Light Em Up 2.
When asked if he would ever consider signing with Lonzo Balls’ Big Baller Brand, Embiid jokingly responded that it would take $1 billion. The comment came on the heels of a $10,000 fine after Embiid directed some foul language at LaVar Ball on Instagram Live.
