Like most baseball fans out there, Joel Embiid can’t seem to decide who to cheer for in the World Series.

The Philadelphia 76ers star attended Game 5 of the World Series in Houston on Sunday night, and judging from his tweets throughout the course of the game, it’s completely up in the air who he’s actually pulling for.

Embiid went into the night prepared to cheer for the Los Angeles Dodgers sporting a Yu Darvish jersey, but seemed to switch his allegiance amid the chaos at Minute Maid Park.

The Dodgers got off to an early 3-0 lead in the first inning and added another run to make it 4-0 before the Astros got going and never looked back. Each team then took their turns pouring on runs on into an extra inning where the home team came out on top, 12-13.

Right after the Astros pulled off the win with a walk-off run in the bottom of the 10th inning, Embiid took a video in which he was jumping up and down cheering with excitement.

Either he forgot which team he was cheering for, or the Astros won him over with their unbelievable hitting. We’ll give him a pass this time around because this World Series has already been one for the books, and the two teams are making it pretty hard for an unbiased fan to pick a side.
