Joel Embiid is the absolute living, breathing reincarnation of George Costanza. Unprecedented levels of mailing it in and the king of snaking it til you make it.
Absolute mailman of the century. Guy’s played 31 games in 3 years and just got a $150M extension. Thats a Costanza level of mailing it in. https://t.co/9J5Z0yW8E5

Seriously, you almost have to respect it. 31 games played out of a total of 246 games he’s been in the NBA for. I would kill to show up for 12 PERCENT of my job and still get paid an exorbitant amount.
