Joel Embiid is Almost 300 Pounds – Mistaken for Chris Christie

Sixers’ number one pick in the 2014 draft, Joel Embiid, has reportedly gained a lot of weight in the last year due to his inability to exercise because the foot injury he’s currently suffering from does not allow him to do foot circles. Some reports indicate Embiid has gotten so large that he is now frequently mistaken for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

In a statement released earlier today, Embiid denied the weight gain. He even Tweeted out a selfie of him lifting up his shirt in the bathroom with the hashtag #4DaLadies.

“I’m sad people would think I’d just stop taking care of myself,” said Embiid. “I’m not some fat pig who should be working, but instead am buddying it up with Jerry Jones when there are more important matters at hand.”

At this point nobody is quite sure who to believe: Embiid or the always honest non-agenda driven media. The only thing we know for certain is that nobody wants to look like Christie.
