'Beale Street' Actress Saved By NBA Star Joel Embiid's Athleticism
Anything can happen during a live sporting event and even spectators aren't exempted from catasthropic incidents.
If Beale Street Could Talk star Regina King experienced just that during an NBA game between the Philadelphia 76ers and the New York Knicks. The actress was comfortably sitting in front row when Sixers' Joel Embiid came rushing her way in pursuit of a loose ball during the game's third quarter. She thankfully avoided disaster when the player leaped into the stands and over her head. That was close!
King thanked Embiid for his athleticism. She wrote in a tweet, "Yoooo. Thank you God and @JoelEmbiid for your athletic abilities. Crisis averted"
