NBA superstar Joel Embiid has apparently never seen an episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” otherwise he would have known who the “reporter” asking about “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies really was.
Comedian Jeff Garlin somehow ended up among a sea of reporters on Tuesday night after Embiid’s 76ers defeated the Los Angeles Clippers, 119-113.
After identifying himself as a reporter from “Pirates of the Caribbean Magazine,” Garlin asked Embiid which film from the series was his favorite. After Embiid replied, “Huh?” Garlin clarified the question by asking, “The first? Second? Third? The ride?”
Embiid shook off the question and another reporter filming the exchange panned over to show Garlin cracking up and walking away.
Cue the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” music.
