HERE’S WHY PHILLY IS IN LOVE WITH JOEL HANS EMBIID!

By Sally Fahey

Philly has been known as a tough town for pro athletes.

Just ask Mike Schmidt, the greatest third baseman in MLB history who was booed when he had trouble hitting at the start of his Hall of Fame career.

So, where does Joel Embiid fit in?

Here’s what the New York Times says:

“I haven’t forgotten but 2 years ago, I got booed, people in Philly wanted me to be traded,” Joel Embiid said on Twitter before this season.

“I even shushed them. Only the real ones didn’t but I just put the work in that off-season to be better cuz I knew I wasn’t playing up to my potential.

Philly fans, y’all also gotta be better.”

There are two ways to be an athlete who never has to buy a meal in Philadelphia ever again.

You can help win a title, as quarterback Nick Foles did in leading the Eagles to the Super Bowl in the 2017 season.

Or you can be a larger-than-life star, like Iverson.

Ideally, you’re both.
