Joel Embiid has never been one to mince words while talking trash to opponents.
That frankness apparently applies to himself as well.
"The past few games, I've been so trash," Embiid told reporters after Wednesday's loss to the Toronto Raptors.
Embiid matched his season low with 10 points on 5-of-17 shooting, adding 12 rebounds and five assists. He did not make a single free throw for the first time all season.
Over the last three games, Embiid is shooting 34.1 percent and hasn't scored more than 16 points. A week ago, he was garnering MVP buzz alongside Giannis Antetokounmpo, Anthony Davis and Kawhi Leonard.
