9-Year-Old Sixers Fan Writes Joel Embiid Touching Letter After Seeing Him Cry


Game 7 between the Sixers and Raptors stirred up many emotions from both sides. 

After a last second buzzer-beater by Kawhi Leonard that would send the Raptors to the Eastern Conference Finals, Philadelphia and its fans were heartbroken. Joel Embiid even left the court crying, a moment that temporarily took over Twitter. 

Although Embiid did get a little grief for crying, there was one caring Sixers fan who decided to send him some words of encouragement. 

Hopefully she'll get to see Embiid go even further in the playoffs next season.
