Joel Embiid will participate this Sunday for the 4th time in a row in the All Star Game. And the Cameroonian pivot will therefore benefit like all the participants from a bonus of 100,000 dollars. But Embiid, who receives an annual salary of 29 million dollars this season 2020-2021, will not receive this bonus.
The 26-year-old basketball player has, in fact, decided to pay them to the poor in Philadelphia. "There are so many people who have gone under during this pandemic. I feel it is important to give more support to individuals and families who are in difficulty. Homeless and in urgent need of food. I am always grateful for the support of Philadelphia and the fans. And not just during the All-Star Game, but throughout my career. I will continue to help them in any way I can," says Joel Embiid.
So generous in life, Embiid is eyeing a season feat of MVP this year. At the halfway point, he is certainly the best player in the NBA. He is the 2nd best scorer in the League (30 pts) and the 6th best rebounder (11 rbds).
