Arthur Embiid

Arthur Embiid was just 13 when he was killed in a horrible accident back home, According to Joel, Arthur was walking to his home with some of his classmates when he was struck by a truck.

Just like that, my brother was gone.  He was so full of life, and somehow he was just gone. Nobody could believe it.  It was a shock to our whole family, and honestly it’s something we’re still dealing with.  


I was only able to go back home for a few weeks for his funeral. When I came back to Philly, I kept rehabbing, trying to get better … but I was in a really bad place. With Arthur gone, I felt like I had lost my purpose in life. I really just wanted to quit the game and go back home to Cameroon to be with my family. And, you know, it’s not like a movie where someone sat me down and had some conversation with me, or I picked up a basketball and all of a sudden everything was O.K.
