Embiid says he didn’t cheat


Joel Embiid took on Twitter to express his disagreement to people who said he cheated during the Skills Challenge during the recently concluded NBA All-Star weekend.

“It’s not cheating, it’s called being smart lol,” Embiid said on Twitter, quoting Bleacher Report’s tweet.

According to SBNation, once the player run out of the ball, regardless whether he shoots one, he can move on to the next round.

Embiid surely knows the rules as he said, how can someone shoot the ball when there are no balls left?
