Quite the hubbub over the last few hours as Joel Embiid and Amir Johnson were seen using a phone while on the bench during Game 1 of their playoff series against the Nets. Everyone has a take on the matter, whether it’s that we’re all being huge hypocrites or that Embiid shouldn’t be on his phone during a playoff loss.
After the game, Embiid said that Johnson was using the phone to check on his daughter, who is “extremely sick.”
Embiid, presumably, was asking Johnson about his daughter, and Johnson showed him the texts he was receiving updating him on her condition.
Hopefully Johnson’s daughter will recover and be in good health soon.
