Joel Embiid eats burger, gets foot rub before Sixers game

Trust the processed meats.

Joel Embiid was spotted sitting on a training table, eating a burger and getting a foot rub an hour and half before the 76ers’ game against the Wizards Sunday.

ESPN’s “NBA Countdown” caught Embiid chowing down on video and guest analyst Chris Bosh said this is not something you usually see in the NBA.

“Now don’t get me wrong, I like a foot rub and a burger, but yeah, it’s not normal,” Bosh said. “But hey, you’ve got to trust the process.”

Despite eating a burger before the Sixers game against the Wizards, Joel Embiid still had a game-high 25 points in the loss.


Despite the pre-game burger, Embiid still led the way for the Sixers scoring a game-high 25 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. However, the rest of his team looked like they’d consumed a large amount of fast food prior to Sunday’s game as the team shot 36 percent from the field.

The Wizards went on to win the game 109-94, snapping the Sixers seven-game win streak.
