Joel Embiid rips Colin Cowherd after Sixers hit 40-win mark
The Philadelphia 76ers have officially proven Colin Cowherd wrong, and Joel Embiid, for one, is certainly basking in it.
Before the season began, the well-known FOX Sports host declared on his radio show that Embiid and the Sixers would not win 40 or more games.

Well as Cowherd’s luck had it, the Sixers hit the 40-win mark on Wednesday with a victory over the Memphis Grizzlies (with 12 games to spare no less). After the win, Embiid took to Twitter to rub it in the face of “Colin Coward.”

Though Embiid is showing love to head coach Brett Brown here, he deserves a lot of the credit himself as the leading scorer, rebounder, and shot-blocker for the now-No. 5-seeded Sixers. If nothing else though, Embiid has definitely been enjoying serving up humble pie to members of the media recently.
