Find out as the 76ers big man follows in the path of Kevin Love and Kevin Durant to become the third hoops star to take on the wings of death. As he tries to swat off the Scovilles, Embiid talks about Meek Mill’s return to Philly during the Playoffs, meeting Michael Jordan, and why he loves dunking on Average Joes on the playground. Trust the Process!”
