Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid might want to invest in some acting lessons.

The talented center flopped in one of the worst ways possible in a Sunday loss to the Raptors. His head was barely touched, and he acted like he got shot in the head.

I’m not even exaggerating a little bit. His head was brushed, and Embiid hit the deck like somebody opened fire from the rafters. (RELATED: Watch Kawhi Leonard’s Game Winner To Beat The Philadelphia 76ers)

Watch the embarrassing moment below.

I understand flopping happens in sports, but you better make damn sure it’s way more convincing than what Embiid did.

Seriously, that’s one of the worst acting performances I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s downright pathetic. He should be ashamed of himself.

They often say the ball doesn’t lie, and that flop might have been the reason the Raptors won. The basketball gods aren’t going to reward that kind of embarrassing behavior.

Do better, Embiid. Do much better. That flop was disgraceful to the sport of basketball, and the proud people of Philly deserve much better.
