PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Philadelphia 76ers All-Star Joel Embiid has a new nickname because of a wrong answer on the quiz show ‘Jeopardy.’

The Sixers All-Star center was featured on the quiz show in the first-round category of “Current Sports Nicknames.”

The $1,000 question was, “Joel Embiid in 2019 won the trademark for this nickname that also describes the 76ers’ strategy of improving the team.”

The answer was The Process.

The contestant guessed, incorrectly, Embiid made fun of the gaffe on social media handles and declared his new nickname was the contestant’s answer: “Do a 180.”
