The Philadelphia 76ers are well on their way to winning their 16th straight game to close out the regular season, and Joel Embiid is watching it all unfold while wearing some pretty snazzy solid gold shoes.
Even the shoe laces are sparkling. That’s some next-level swag right there.
Even better, Embiid isn’t completely ruling out a return to action in Game 1 (he’s not likely to play) of the first round of playoff action, where he’ll be sporting a different type of swag.

Regardless, it won’t be long until Embiid can join his teammates, who have been torching opponents even while he’s been out of commission following a nasty collision that broke his orbital bone.
