Joel Embiid's 'New Look' Hair Brings Back Andrew Bynum Memories for 76ers Fans

Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid showed off a "new look" Sunday on Instagram.

While crouched in a pool, the 23-year-old do-it-all center gave fans a glimpse of a different hairstyle. This came just weeks after Embiid played an April Fools' Day joke about going for a buzz cut.

Complex Sports' Max Rappaport gave Philly fans a sinking feeling in their stomachs by putting Embiid's picture side-by-side with Sixers anti-legend Andrew Bynum:

Embiid, who only played 31 games in 2016-17, looks like a franchise building block. Comparing him to the once-promising Bynum—who spent one injury-ravaged season in Philadelphia and never suited up for a regular-season game—is the last thing Sixers fans want to see.
