Or shall we now officially call him "The Process."
Complete coverage of the Philadelphia 76ers and their rivals in the NBA from NBC Sports Philadelphia.
On Tuesday night, it was debuted — and it was great.
Fans chanted "trust the process" boisterously during his NBA regular-season debut.
"That’s my motto, 'Trust the process,'” Embiid said that night with a smile.
He had to be happy with Cord's rendition Tuesday before Embiid delivered 18 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks in the Sixers' down-to-the-wire, 103-101 loss to the Magic.
