As NBA fans go without basketball during the coronavirus pandemic, Joel Embiid's wit and willingness to playfully ether opposing NBA players is greatly welcomed.

The Philadelphia 76ers big man was back at it on Tuesday, after Atlanta Hawks power forward John Collins said Embiid was the one player he wanted to dunk on during a B/R AMA on Monday. Embiid replied with a picture of him dunking over Collins and a link to the highlight:

Yesterday, the 76ers big man pledged $500,000 to aid those in need during the coronavirus pandemic. Embiid also committed to supporting full-time Sixers employees who were set to have their salaries reduced by 20 percent amid the NBA hiatus.

The team originally confirmed it would be reducing the salaries for team employees making more than $50,000 per year, however, team owner Josh Harris eventually reversed course on Tuesday. 

So Embiid is winning on social media and in real life. Trust The Process, indeed.
