NBA player Joel Embiid finally has a registered trademark. His application for “TRUST THE PROCESS” to be used with clothing apparel has recently been granted registration status with the USPTO.
Josh Gerben was quoted by SI.com and Yahoo Sports discussing the reasons for why Embiid’s 20 other trademark applications are still pending:
BREAKING NEWS: The USPTO issued Joel Embiid’s first trademark registration on ‘THE PROCESS’ today.
Ironically, at his post-game press conference on Sunday night, Embiid said “I don’t give a damn about The Process.”
