Gah, I LOVE him! He just fits in with Philly SO WELL! His personality, his down-to-earth-ness. It's like he was MADE to be here!
It was the 5:30p Mass on Sunday at St Kevin's Church in Springfield Delaware County, when right around communion, they noticed Joel Embiid was there!
“Everybody was excited,” Embiid told reporters during a press conference. “I had fun too. I’m Catholic, it was Sunday and it’s the thing to do I felt like going to church… I needed to go to church.”
Kristen Murphy, one of the mom's told CBS3:
“Thank you for being so kind to all those kids. Every one of those kids in that church will remember for the rest of their lives,” Kristen said.
