'Trust the process' chants for Joel Embiid take over Boston

'Trust the process' chants for Joel Embiid take over Boston

You don't have to be in the Philadelphia area to trust the process.

As the Sixers used a 39-point second quarter to take a double-digit lead over the Celtics, Joel Embiid dominated Boston on both ends of the court. He limited the C's in the post while scoring left and right, particularly forcing his way to the free throw line against smaller Celtics defenders.

And when Embiid made it to the line, the chants came out (see the video above).

Fans at the Sixers-Celtics clash on Friday night serenaded Embiid with "trust the process" chants when he went to the free throw line during that second quarter. The Boston fans tried to boo and drown out the chants, but they continued to come back with Embiid's trip to the line.

"Joel’s getting worldwide," Nerlens Noel said of the chants. "He needs a tour now. I think he’s getting on another level. I think he’s very loved everywhere, really. As we go along, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear it in multiple places."

On his last free throws of the quarter with 16.5 seconds left, calls of "trust the process" rained down on Embiid, who nodded his head to what was certainly music to his ears.

"They were actually really loud," Embiid said. "It's impressive. We're in Boston, it's supposed to our rival, and for the fans to come out and just chant trust the process so loud, it was amazing."

Check out the video above for highlights of the "trust the process" chants taking over the TD Garden. 

Oh, and check out this dunk. Sheesh.

Temple football surprises walk-on with a scholarship

Temple football surprises walk-on with a scholarship

Moments like this never get old.

On Saturday, the Temple football captured a special moment for junior tight end Chris Myarick.

After the annual Cherry and White game, the cameras were rolling when Myarick, from Cheltenham High School in Elkins Park, Pa., was awarded a scholarship after making the team as a walk-on in 2014.

Myarick’s teammates mobbed him after the news was announced.

Congratulations, Chris.

Trust the … Lego? Reddit user reveals Lego version of Joel Embiid

Trust the … Lego? Reddit user reveals Lego version of Joel Embiid

He calls himself "The Process."

He is a main piece of The Process.

And now there's a Lego version of The Process' poster child.

Yes -- thanks to Redditor user dweg1999 -- we have a picture of what Joel Embiid would look like if, yes, he was built of Legos.

After sitting out his first two years in the NBA because of injuries, Embiid burst onto the scene and became an instant star for the Sixers. A piece they can build around both on the court and off it. He's charismatic who knows how to use social media.

Embiid is a special blend of greatness on the court and marketable off it. If he can stay healthy -- his season was cut short because of another one and he will be limited again in 2017-18 -- the Sixers have their guy to build around. Add in a Ben Simmons, a more experienced Dario Saric, potentially two more lottery picks -- at least one more -- and next season will be a whole lot of fun.

But for now, as we wait for the May 16 draft lottery, we are stuck checking out Lego versions of Joel Embiid. If only we were that good with Legos ourselves.
