Philadelphia 76ers' Joel Embiid Preps for NBA Playoffs with Dragon Ball
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
2017–18 All-Star and Philadelphia 76ers' center Joel Embiid showed how he relaxes before a playoff game—with a little Dragon Ball. Embiid was catching up on his anime on his iPhone X while receiving a pre-game shoulder massage.
The 76ers faced the Boston Celtics last night in the first game of the semi-finals but lost 101 to 117. The teams will square off again on Thursday.
The Dragon Ball franchise seems to be a favorite among professional athletes. The Green Bay Packers' Mike Daniels went Super Saiyan in artwork for the Packers Fence last year and Dallas Mavericks' Wesley Matthews starred in a parody of the Dragon Ball Z opening. The wrestling trio The New Day entered the ring in 2016 dressed as Super Saiyans for WWE's Wrestlemania 32. MMA fighter, Olympian, actress, and author Ronda Rousey showed up to Wrestlemania in 2015 while rocking a Dragon Ball Z "It's Over 9000!!" shirt and admitted to a cartoon crush on Vegeta.
