Joel Embiid went to South Africa this summer as part of the NBA’s Basketball Without Border’s program, the program that put him on the path to the NBA.
Embiid took the title of that seriously — he did not just parachute in, play in a game, and get out. He is still there, heading back to his native Cameroon.
There with his trainer Drew Hanlen, they played a little soccer with the locals, and there is some video.
In any sport on any continent, Joel Embiid knows how to celebrate.
