WATCH: Joel Embiid imitates Triple H's entrance
MANILA, Philippines - It's time to play the game. The NBA game, that is.
The Philadelphia 76ers big man paid tribute to WWE legend turned executive Paul Levesque - better known as Triple H - prior to a game against the Charlotte Hornets on Friday, January 13 (Saturday Manila time).
The 7-footer Embiid even spit water into the air in Triple H fashion but thankfully didn't hit Frank Kaminsky with a Pedigree.
Triple H took to Twitter to critique Embiid's form, writing "Still have to perfect the water-to-spit ratio...Not bad for a first attempt," but adds "To play the game you gotta go through The Process."
Once the game began, Embiid buried the Hornets worse than Triple H buried CM Punk at Night of Champions 2011, scoring 24 points and grabbing 8 rebounds, while blocking 3 shots - including a fierce rejection of a Cody Zeller dunk attempt.
The 76ers won 102-93. – Rappler.com
