We have documented the awesomeness of rookie 76ers center Joel Embiid quite a bit this off-season. In a new interview, however, Embiid SOUNDS like he’s discussing the “dating” (he’s saying “did it” while discussing Twitter) scene at Kansas. His answer was pretty candid: “So many hoes.”
Let’s remember he’s Cameroonian, so before everyone gets all pissy, let’s just chalk this up as a cultural/mispronunciation thing. Maybe he doesn’t realize that saying things like this on TV sends sports Twitter into a tizzy? OK?
Update: Some people are saying “rules” instead of “hoes.” I’m sorry, but I’m just not hearing it. It sounds very clearly like “hoes.” He makes a very obvious “OH” sound, not “ULES.” I don’t hear an “L” at all. I DEFINITELY don’t hear an “R.”
But whatever. Chill our Kansas fans and let us giggle. As you were, Joel.
