Sixers Fans Were There in Spirit for Joel Embiid’s Career Night

Fan Nation


Article Summary:

With COVID-19 keeping most fans out of the stands for the 2020-2021 NBA season, it seemed it would be tough for a player like Sixers center Joel Embiid to find the energy and motivation to dominate on a nightly basis.

In the past, Embiid always made it known that he feeds off of the crowd’s energy when he’s playing at the Wells Fargo Center. “Fans are always there for me when I play,” Embiid explained after the victory over Chicago. “I play for the fans, and I play for the city. All my goals when it comes to basketball, I relate it to the city of Philadelphia. So, I always feel like they are here with us even though they are not. I always feel their presence.”

Sometime soon, the Sixers hope to have at least a few thousand fans back in the seats at the Wells Fargo Center, and Embiid is excited for that day.
