We all knew Joel Embiid would feel compelled to respond to LaVar Ball’ s comments, and sure enough, he did.
Embiid recently used Instagram Live to tell the world how he felt about Ball, and, much to the surprise of no one, he came hard and the comments were not safe for work.
He and some of his buddies went live on July 4 while out walking down a street somewhere, and they collectively shared their thoughts on Papa Ball, who appeared on 97.5 The Fanatic last week and insinuated that he and teammate Ben Simmons weren’t relevant.
“Man… f–k LaVar Ball” Embid said.
In case you missed the backstory, this beef started when Ben Simmons tweeted “crazy pills” on draft night a few weeks back. And shortly afterward, Embiid sent the following tweet.
That’s what caused Ball to appear on Philly radio, during which he said Big Baller Brand didn’t even “waste their time” contacting both Embiid and Simmons. Clearly, though, that’s not the case. The reality is that the two NBA stars are both fan favorites, while Ball is nothing more than a man who is trying to use his son’s skill set in an attempt to make himself relevant.
We’re going to award this round to Embiid. Stay tuned for more in the future.
