Sixers center Joel Embiid watched some of the 132-115 win over the Wizards on Tuesday night from the seats amongst the crowd. He was seen sitting with a young fan on his lap.
The move gave the kid a night to remember and Embiid a fan for life. It won't show up on the stat sheet with his 20 points and 10 rebounds, but the moment was every bit as important.
This is just another part of the process. Embiid is gearing up for a deep playoff run.
