Joel Embiid has had a very productive summer, apparenlty.
In a new YouTube video released this week by Hoop Loop, where Embiid does the #OneChipChallenge (these things are still a thing?) and eats a Paqui chip, the Sixers' center says he lost 25 pounds this summer.
"This summer I lost about 25 pounds, I'm about to put it back on with this milk," he said.
Embiid was struggling after eating the red hot chip.
On of the big knocks on Embiid was his conditioning, but losing 25 pounds would go a long way in correcting that. Entering year four, the two-time All-Star has played more than 60 games in each of the last two seasons. This year, with the additions of Al Horford and Josh Richardson and the continud growth of Ben Simmons and Embiid, the Sixers are among the top four favorites to win the NBA Finals.
