Joel Embiid might be the most famous person to go running through the streets of Philadelphia since Rocky Balboa.
Embiid is still rehabbing the knee issue that ended last season early for him — he has only been cleared for 5-on-5 halfcourt action and has not played in scrimmages for the Sixers yet — but that does not mean he’s not getting his conditioning in.
Above (and below, at the bottom of this post) is a dashcam video of a Lyft driver in Philly who saw Embiid going for a late night jog, courtesy Sports Illustrated (hat tip NBC Sports Philadelphia).
The driver wanted to say something and yells out “Yo, trust the process. I love you.” Embiid acknowledged him by giving him the hand wave and just kept on running.
