Following in the footsteps of Kevin Durant and Kevin Love, Philadelphia 76ers All-Star Joel Embiid is the third NBA player to appear on Hot Ones. During the episode, Embiid discusses everything from dunking on civilians, to meeting Allen Iverson, Meek Mill getting out of prison, Philly slang, and hip-hop.

Joel also provides insight on who he thinks will have the hottest album of the summer, amidst a flurry of hip-hop releases, as he predicts Drake’s Scorpion to be the one.
