The All-Star center showed off his new puppy on Instagram on Monday while also providing his interesting name:
The dog is not only named "Klaus Hinkie De Paula Embiid," but the two-time All-Star also added several hashtags referencing Hinkie, including #TheProcess and #HeDiedForOurSins.
Hinkie was the creator of The Process in Philadelphia, which featured a long-term strategy of losing in order to continually get high draft picks. Embiid was one of those picks (No. 3 overall in 2014) and a key part of the turnaround as the team has become a legitimate contender in the Eastern Conference.
While the GM stepped down in 2016, Embiid has clearly not forgotten his contributions to the franchise.
