Embiid, not trusting water slide, eventually takes leap

Joel Embiid may trust the process when it comes to Sixers basketball, but the Philadelphia center does not trust water slides.

Sixers co-owner Michael Rubin posted video of Embiid afraid to go down a giant water slide - called Leap of Faith - at Atlantis in the Bahamas.

Atlantis says the slide "offers a daring and adventurous 60-foot almost-vertical drop from the top of the world-famous and iconic Mayan Temple. The body slide propels riders at a tremendous speed through a clear acrylic tunnel submerged in a shark-filled lagoon."

After nearly 40 minutes, and retreating six times, Jojo finally took the leap of faith.

Rubin posted photos of Embiid moments before the big splash.
