WATCH: Joel Embiid and Justin Bieber arm-wrestled in Los Angeles
This summer keeps getting bigger for the Sixers' big man
This is a big year for Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid. He's finally looking like he's healthy, he's wowing people with his workouts during the summer and it sounds like he's going to make his NBA debut at the start of the season. The 2014 No. 3 overall pick could be a real franchise-changer for a Sixers organization that looks to be headed in the right direction after three years of tanking.
That's not where the big year for Embiid ends though. He's also taking down pop stars arm-wrestling in Los Angeles establishments. Embiid was videoed arm-wrestling with Justin Bieber at Hyde in Los Angeles and it looks like he didn't have much trouble doing it either.
Bieber was tenacious by the looks of it. He'll never say never in a situation like that but there are serious logistics to figure out in someone of Bieber's size trying to arm-wrestle the 7-foot center who is probably pushing 260-270 pounds. Bieber probably thought, "I'll show you," but he just couldn't get any traction by the looks of the video.
This should put the finishing touches on the offseason training for Embiid.
