On the surface, his tweet Wednesday night was a nice thank you to Sixers fans and a strong reiteration of his desire to use the team's second-round loss to the Raptors as motivation.

Embiid hopes he's still playing this time next year, not leaving the court in tears after a heartbreaking loss.
For now, though, the Sixers' crown jewel is back on social media and giving us his usual gems.
