Maybe Joel Embiid was joking.
After all, his nickname is Troel!
Following the Sixers 120-106 win over ther Pacers, Embiid was asked if any panic had set in after three straight losses.
“I mean, from the fans’ perspective, yeah, they probably wanted me to be traded and the whole team to be sent down to the G League,” Embiid told reporters.
“But, to me, it’s no pressure. It’s three games in, fairly new team, everybody’s trying to find their way. I thought today was a big step offensively and defensively.”
