  1. Did you know Embiid didn’t start playing basketball until he was 15? Before his NBA career, he had plans to go pro in volleyball in Europe. Talk about a slam dunk career switch!
  2. Dual citizen alert. Embiid holds both French and American citizenship, hailing from the Yaoundé, Cameroon.
  3. “The Process” is Embiid’s self-given nickname, born out of the 76ers “trust the process” era. He embraced it in response to the fans and the Sam Hinkie era.
  4. Late to the driver’s seat game! Embiid didn’t get his license until 2020, despite attempting to learn four times during his college days at Kansas.
  5. For some wind-down time, he enjoys a good binge-watching of his favorite show, Vampire Diaries. Fangtastic choice, in our humble opinion 😉
