Joel Embiid Fined $35,000 For Crotch Celebration, But Tripp H Invites Him To Wrestlemania

Philadelphia 76ers superstar Joel Embiid has been fined $35,000 for his crotch celebration against the Portland Trail Blazers. This is the second time Embiid has been fined for a celebratory gesture, as he was also fined $25,000 for a celebratory gesture against the Brooklyn Nets last season.

WWE CCO Triple H invited Embiid to WrestleMania 40 in Philadelphia to perform the crotch celebration. Tripp H said, “Hey Joel Embiid – I know a place where you can hang out all day and everyone will love it. Wrestlemania 40 right here in Philly.”

The NBA has already stated that Embiid’s gesture was inappropriate, but Triple H apparently has a different opinion. We’ll see if Embiid takes Tripp H up on his offer to do a crotch celebration at WrestleMania 40.

Comparison of Embiid’s crotch celebration moves last season and this season

Last season, Embiid performed a crotch celebration move after scoring a layup and drawing a foul against the Brooklyn Nets. The move was considered a tribute to the iconic taunt of WWE’s legendary faction D-Generation X.

This season, Embiid performed a crotch celebration after a Portland Trail Blazers dunk. The move was also seen as a tribute to D-Generation X.

The two celebratory maneuvers have drawn mixed reactions. Some thought it was inappropriate while others thought it was funny.

It’s unclear why Embiid continues to engage in crotch celebrations, even though he’s been fined for them in the past. However, it’s clear that this celebratory gesture can be polarizing. Some see it as an offense, while others see it as harmless fun.
