NBA Twitter Left in Disbelief After Joel Embiid Got a Rare Cristiano Ronaldo Card on FIFA 22: “Thousands Are Nothing to Him”

Joel Embiid took to Twitter to convey his appreciation for EA Sports and FIFA after receiving a rare Cristiano Ronaldo in the game. The Cameroonian 27-year-old has previously shown support for the Premier League club Arsenal and even showcased his football skills with NBA players Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo at last year’s All-Star game.

Remarkably, Embiid is performing well despite the team’s recent controversial trouble regarding guard Ben Simmons. Reportedly, the Sixers are not willing to trade Ben Simmons to just anyone despite his absence throughout the season. If rumors are to be believed, the Sixers front office is aiming at acquiring James Harden in the summer as they have worked together in the Rockets. However, Embiid’s season is not worth wasting this time.

Joel Embiid and MVP prospects

After yesterday’s win over the Lakers, the 76ers are matched with the Nets with 29 wins and 19 losses. The Lakers were without LeBron James, but Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook were given ample playing time to adjust for the same.  The 76ers made it to the Conference Semi-Finals 3 times in the last 4 years. Even though the Sixers are playing despite Simmons’ absence. Still, Joel Embiid has been performing at an exceptional level.

Furthermore, with 7,512 points, he has passed Sixers veteran Moses Malone on their all-time scoring chart.
