The Philadelphia 76ers rookie can wear many hats on any given day, but he is not Nerlens Noel.
Blackburn writes that the paper—a South Jersey publication no stranger to covering 76ers basketball—should be familiar with Philadelphia's first-round draft pick.
"You'd think [the Courier-Post] would be able to identify a photo of Joel Embiid, who the team drafted at third overall back in June," Blackburn writes.
If genuine, it's an embarrassing error for the publication that slipped past a host of editorial goalkeepers before being inked on paper and shipped out to subscribers.
While we're here, it appears a lot of people don't know how to spell Embiid's name.
@BVanKemp Cavs will take either Wiggins or Parker. Bucks may go Imbiid and the Sixers would have either Parker or Wiggins at 3. Capeesh?— Tony Bruno (@TonyBrunoShow) May 21, 2014
Errors can happen even among experienced reporters. I've called Russell Westbrook "Brian Westbrook" before. The cringe factor here is the obvious lack of the delete key in the print media. There's no way to call back those papers once they've circulated.
So let's end this cycle with a recitation of the Embiid Creed:
"This is my 'Embiid.' There are many spellings like it, but this one is mine. 'Embiid' is my best friend. I must master this spelling as I must master my life."
Got it? Good.
