Sixers’ Joel Embiid Crashes Live TV Broadcast After Eagles’ Super Bowl Win

Joel Embiid loves his brothers in his new home city.

The Philadelphia 76ers center crashed a live television broadcast Sunday night following the Eagles’ win over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

A WTXF-Philadelphia reporter was interviewing some jubilant Eagles fans when Embiid appeared in the shot and offered a few insights on the team’s victory.

Ben Simmons, one of Embiid’s Sixers teammates, also joined the celebrations in downtown Philadelphia.

The Eagles ended Philadelphia’s professional sports title drought after nine-plus years, so it only makes sense for stars of other teams to join in on the fun.

But assuming the 25-25 Sixers will challenge for the NBA championship this year or next is nothing short of a leap of faith.
