Joel Embiid has never been afraid to show off a little bit of his personality. So when he pulled out a particularly... well, let's just call it unique... celebration after finishing a transition layup on Wednesday night, it didn't come as a major surprise.
After the game, Embiid told reporters the move was inspired by his professional wrestling fandom.
"DX, Triple H and Shawn Michaels, were my favorite wrestlers," he said.
Ah, so this was the D-Generation X Chop. OK Joel, we all believe you.
Hey, when you're in the process of blowing out the Washington Wizards 120-95 and going up 2-0 in the series, you get to call your celebrations whatever you like.
