Joel Embiid Gets Upset Over ESPN Graphic Too much emotion leads to misunderstanding

Joel Embiid Gets Upset Over ESPN Graphic

Phildelphia 76er big man Joel Embiid has been the main headline of news stories lately. When ESPN showed a graphic of former 76er’s top draft picks, Embiid took to social media to display his frustration regarding the information.

But what Embiid failed to realize, as you analyze the graphic, is ESPN is referring to the number of games each of those first round draft picks played (or didn’t play, really) during their rookie year (most of them being zero due to injury). People who saw the tweet were quick to point out the error and put Embiid on notice.

Did Embiid get over-emotional over nothing?
