Joel Embiid 2020 NBA All-Star Media Day Interview | NBA on ESPN Joel Embiid 2020 NBA All-Star Media Day Interview | NBA on ESPNWhose last name is Fuller, are you know? I got the chance to spend about 45 minutes with him just talking to him, and I think I was really cool, especially for me and my story. You know I started playing basketball, it was, you know, just you know, back in 2011, watching the fight 2010 NBA finals and never play basketball before, and then I just wash it. I want to that’s what I want to do because of them. So I was, I was really sad. What the hell did you just saw. This is Killer Instinct. You know it if you miss the last shot.
Are you committed? You know, that’s what I liked about him. I, like him a lot, I think, he’s a great player like you supposed to know. I think it’s funny I made me doesn’t even have to say anything he’s just look at them and you can’t have. That is a funny dude. So I think, he’s a great player. I don’t know, I’m not sure I don’t wash bus boxer Boscov’s, my God, like I said when I was I was happy. I was more happier good myself, you know, she’s been from camera and you don’t have another guy, also make it as a loss.
I think is, is amazing for my country and his amazing for Africa too. So love you better Wawa do not got a. I got a hoping always tell them that you know if he doesn’t want or whenever it’s comfortable doing so you know I’m all for it and then a lot of people always talk about. You know why I spend a lot of time at the three-point line and all that you know you understand basketball and if you trying to win again, that’s what I got do because you so good driving to the basket. So that’s what I got to do and I’m going to keep on doing that because I think he’s going to help us win and you know and whenever you know he’s comfortable.
I would like turn on shoot the ball, but whatever is comfortable. Stats on the storms. I think it’s BS, because when you look at the last couple years, the last two years that we’ve been playing together, it was not a problem. You know this year is all your problem, because I time’s our offense of struggle, not think he’s he’s going he’s. Definitely going to be better than last after the All-Star break, but I mean just look at the last 2 years. What we’ve been able to do and I think he can walk and it’s going to work juice, the hard work you know I got the chance to know him a little bit so just talkin to him hard work, I loved it.
Anybody that knows me knows that quavo from it I love it. You know I Spy play just me getting back to myself the whole season. . You know I’ve been quiet before I was on social media. Acting crazy and people say that it was immature and I’ll stop and people now. . Everybody says that you know I don’t have passion for the game. I don’t care about a game, so he’s a lose-lose situation, so I just got to be myself and you know if you want people to want win. So what so I just got to be myself and – and I think he’s going to help you a lot just a small, you know do what you got to do and you know it just get her to stay.
I think he’s going to be, I think, having a basketball African League. You know enough week. I think he’s going to be great, as you can see, show me Pascal. You know a couple guys in the league search there’s a lot of times over there and I think the NBA, taking the initiative of you know opening a new leg over there. I think he’s great is a lot of talent, so we just we just need the right people to teachers and we going to be fun. My guy, you know he’s like he’s like family to me when I heard that use I was happy for it was cool.
I think, being an agent for such a long time and you know getting a ga president job. I think it’s amazing, so I’m happy for him and I’m just going to do a good job over there yeah. I know I’m actually a flamingo fan because my girlfriend she’s a dad is a flamingo fence. So you know, since you started, dating, follow up a little bit. So if a mango, I would like to see a Brittney Griner yeah. I think so. You know people say he’s the best out of the league, so I think he’s is wanted, is Ben, is Ben you’ve been doing a great job over there and I’m a big fan, I think, he’s a great player.
We were actually in Cleveland play some Dominican food and I tried it. It was rice and beans and some chicken also it was good yeah. They’re, probably built yourself live in this game. I think it’s cool, but the way I look at it is you know you got to Integrity of the game, basketball, we’ll find it a certain way and I feel like if you make too many changes not going to have the same flavor. So I’m not up, for you know a lot of like too much changes because you still got to keep the integrating up again I’ll, probably KD KD form, because you know that’s a lot of special talent that the whole world I know about.
You should look at you know the guy sign the league, the guys I’ve been able to make it. You know you can you can really say a man that far someone else better than me all. That has the potential to be better than me in the future. So I think, he’s a great and it said if I think it’s great, you know my you know it’s going to come out towards the end of this year. I think is amazing to be kind of like enough family and I could have never imagined having my own shoe, but I’m excited about it. Like I said, I’m not sure I don’t.
I don’t really know about the whole thing, so I can’t talk about. It is important to a southern boy. You know how to you know, hanging out all the time going to the strip club and go to the club and party and cast of fall guy. Like me, I don’t know the last time I went. I was five and two years ago. I don’t do anything. I just like to stay home playing video games and you know be my girlfriend dog, my family. So you know I got into a certain point. You can’t hang out, but he doesn’t mean that you guys are going to be great on the corner.
So I don’t think that’s. Salary is great. Nothing Road! We’Re here to enjoy yourself – and you know just have fun, maybe do a little before you go to the Grind. I wish you were playing, though, because I feel like I was getting back to myself and I was getting back into. You know that mentality of just dominating, so it’s cool but of course I’m in school. Of course, I want to take the shot so yeah. Why not? Now, probably up after a lot of FIFA, Madden Bobby Lamar call Donna’s, my guy he’s, probably one of the funniest guy I’ve ever been around.
You know we miss him. I was kind of sad trade it in but he’s basketball his business buddy. But you was a great teammate, you know just a hard worker and a fun do to be a while. Do I set up and what a great opportunity, I think you can have a big impact in the league call all all has been a great guy. Obviously, over the years he’s gained a reputation of being a grateful and you’ve been around and I’ll. Send it I’ll, send it a lot and then pause. What’S up wi donating the Dominican fans, man, I’m just I’m just here to have fun, you know, try to win the game play hard and I appreciate all the support I think it’s going to be great.
Is the law is a little different? You know when you talk about I’m a big man, but then again when you look at the way I play it again and the way I move like a guard, so I want it. I want it walking with that. We wanted to make sure that it was. It was a shootout feed me and also fit. My gay Witch Is Gone Gone like so. Just talk just talk into it and I think it’s going to be great. You know, I need any kind of Grouchy. You can think of that’s what it’s going to be about a man like I said, I’m happy, for you is a great human being just like family to me and I think he’s going to do a great job nah.
. I think we haven’t made a final decision. Yet but she has been doing a great job and he’s always been about a collective effort. Do you know it was always me on? It was always other guys, Michael told him. So that’s a lot of support Iran. So I’m happy about that being able to provide for Lyft, because I’m back to being myself, I think it starts with me, especially with their work, was toggle all the world just make bringing up passion. You know I’ve always out of passion brother. I have not been able to show it because I I’ll try to be a changed man.
I guess so just be going back to being myself and having fun and talkin trash, and I Google helped a lot. I made you look at last year. I wish 27 and a half point and we was talkin trash. I was out in front and it was all cool and I think a lot of people saw that as being immature MN. . You know. Sometimes I was a little childish and I kind of wanted to see the other side of it and be a real professional, and I mean it brought my my my my average. I was driving on the way I play. The game has been completely different, so obviously hasn’t worked out, so I got to go back to whatever that walked out of the year the year before hello, babe you’re, not not being myself.
I think my game has always been based on just being massage is being expressive just doing whatever, and I wouldn’t totally blaming on that. You know just figured you Team new teammate trying to figure it out. I can hope – and I do a feeling I think it’s a big part of, but I think a lot of things are going to change. I married you been awhile, you hear that from everybody, so I don’t think necessary. I was sometimes I could have been, but that’s my nature allowed to have fun. I think a lot of people are falling in love where that, because we met because of it so anyway, I’ll talk me down there, so I can.
