Even at a young age, I always had the assumption that famous people only hang out with famous people. Like all those stories of famous people ‘never forgetting where they came from’? Bullshit. If I had the choice of hanging out with the cast of Wolf of Wall Street or my friends from high school, well, let’s just say my Christmas card list would significantly shrink. So I’m really not all too surprised that Joel Embiid and Justin Bieber were partying at the same club. I’m also not too surprised that Bieber somehow ended up arm wrestling a professional athlete. That pretty much fits everything I know and assume about the kid.
So I’m pretty positive Embiid was holding back. The guy’s a professional athlete. Sure, Bieber works out and drops fire songs, but he doesn’t get paid to be in peak physical condition. It’s like if I challenged Joey Chestnut to an eating contest. Like, I eat a lot, but I don’t get paid to eat. I’d be blown out of the water unless he ate very slowly. Keep it even.
