The hottest thing right now in the city of Philadelphia aside from the 'Wentz Wagon' is "Trust The Process."

Former 76ers General Manager Sam Hinkie begged fans to trust the process, but it wasn't until Joel Embiid embraced the process that fans bought in.

Embiid was on his way to winning Rookie of the Year (he still could) until he was injured and missed more than half of the season, but his ability on the court coupled with the success of other rookies helped Philadelphia win 28 games, their highest total since the 2012-13 season.

Now, fans are being rewarded once again for trusting the process as the 76ers will almost certainly be selecting Markelle Fultz after trading for the first overall pick.

Clearly the process is working, but that doesn't mean everyone is a fan of it.

Monday, Bucks Owner Wes Edens took a shot at the 76ers and their slogan.

Embiid was quick to fire back, though.

While it's true that it's more about results at the end of the day than the process, the Bucks have made the playoffs three times in the last seven years and have been eliminated in the first round every time.

Furthermore, since 1998 the Bucks have made it past the first round of the playoffs just once.

Yes, it's about results, but the Bucks might not be the shining example of a team that has produced results recently.

With a solid core, though, both teams have a chance to produce better results in the upcoming season.
