Joel Embiid Trolls Colin Cowherd After Sixers' 40th Win


Joel Embiid fired back his greatest critic Colin Cowherd. Cowherd is one those ‘sports guys’ with a nationally syndicated audience, so what he says goes for the most part, until someone with an equally big frame stands up to him. In October, Cowherd was extremely critical the Sixers’ chances anything much less a playf berth going into the season, forecasting less than 40 wins.

Well jokes on him. The Sixers reached the 40th victory in their 70th game the season and look hard pressed to fall out the playf picture. As the Sixers were nearing the 40 mark, Embiid began to draw attention to those Cowherd’s earlier remarks by digging up their posts on social media and reposting them with new timestamp. Cowherd’s analysis Embiid in particular was very far f the mark, calling him a “riot on twitter” and “really good” but largely unproven due to “restricted minutes.” To make matters worse, Cowherd even rated the lowly Lakers head and shoulders above the Sixers in the preseason. The Lakers are very much a proto vehicle until proven otherwise. The Sixers are, well, on the cusp.

This was Embiid’s ficial response:

Trust the process, folks.
