NBA star Joel Embiid is never one to shy away from the spotlight, and not only does he have a keen interest in the world of television, but he’s also a fan of Marcus Lemonis. Perhaps this is because Embiid discovered the RE/MAX mogul when he was playing college basketball, and although Embiid may not have realized it at the time, he was befriending a future mentor.
Embiid was never really on the trade block, but he was interested in moving to a smaller market, and the Lakers were in the mix. Some of you may not know who Marcus Lemonis is, but you definitely know his brand and product. Lemonis is well-known in the sports world, most notably for his attempt at buying the Pittsburgh Pirates, and is now an owner of a few restaurants and a collection of companies. In our opinion, he is one of the most interesting, down to earth, and admirable people in the world of sports. It was great to see Embiid trust the process and embrace the idea of listening to his agents. He will be playing in Los Angeles this upcoming season, and we are interested to
Their fans have heard and said Trust the Process so many times that the Philadelphia 76ers might as well make it their new name. Joel Embiid embodies that motto, and he should be immortalized on his plaque when the No. 3 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft is inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

A year after reaching the Eastern Conference semifinals, the team dropped to 34 wins in 2012-13 and missed the playoffs. Hinkie started dismantling the team to get extras and cheap young talent. But that wasn’t the real goal. Instead, Hinkie planned to continue the leak, trading new assets for more and more valuable stuff. There is a beginning and an end; there is a long process in between. When the Sixers fell to 18-64, defenseman Tony Wroten told ESPN in January 2015 that the organization had adopted the mantra Trust the Process. Embiid, sometimes called Process, became a fixture in the team’s philosophy at the age of 20 when he was brought in from Kansas and missed his first two seasons with a foot injury. Ben Simmons appeared in 2016, but he also missed his entire rookie season. In 2017-18 alone, they spent a full season together. Hinkie is gone, but the steady rotation of players he started with led to four draft picks that brought Tobias Harris to town in February 2019 and two first-round picks that the 76ers spent on Danny Green in December 2020. The 76ers just won their first division title since 2001 and are up 3-0 against Washington in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals on Memorial Day.

Wroten spent four seasons in Philadelphia before the 76ers fired him at the start of the 2015-16 season, saving the combo guard from a 10-72 season. But the phrase he said – Trust the process – has stuck with me. Two seasons later, the Sixers had their first 50-win season since 2001, and TTP was inevitable. One astute observer even thought it was more than inevitable; Marcus Lemonis thought it was marketable. The 19th. In April 2016, Lemonis filed a trademark application for Trust the Process. Lemonis, president and CEO of Camping World and Gander Outdoors, is hosting CNBC’s The Profit, where he will be searching for struggling small businesses across the country that still have potential. Lemonis buys shares in companies and helps them turn around. According to records from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Marcus Lemonis LLC has trademarked Trust the Process for apparel, business advice and information distributed through a television show.
Embiid good on field, but lost on field
. Embiid fell of the 21st. November 2018, filed an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to register the words Trust The Process for the sale of shoes. He thought he was on good terms, as the basketball star had already trademarked The Process in connection with clothing. It turns out that this is not the case. Lemonis raised the flag, and on the 31st. In January 2020, the USPTO ruled that Embiid’s alleged use of the caption Trust the Process on his shoes infringed on Lemonis’ clothing line.
