Embiid had himself a night out in Los Angeles.
Last night in Los Angeles, Joel Embiid filled up the stat sheet against the Lakers with 46 points, 15 rebounds, seven assists, seven blocks, and one subtle jab at LaVar Ball. After Embiid's career-night at Staples Center, which resulted in a 115-109 win, The Process took to social media to put the proverbial icing on the cake.
Embiid has proven time and again that he's one of the best athletes to follow on social media and last night was no different as he continued his "beef" with LaVar Ball by tagging "LaVar" as the location on the following photo.
Joel Embiid got into a little war of words with Lonzo Ball's pops during the off-season, when he tweeted at Ben Simmons to dunk on Lonzo, after LaVar predicted that the Lakers would make the playoffs in his rookie season. Embiid also said "Fuck LaVar Ball" during an Instagram Live video, which resulted in a $10,000 fine from the NBA.
Shortly after Embiid's comments, TMZ reporters caught up with LaVar to get his take on things and, as always, he didn't hold back. The Ball patriarch called out the Sixers' big man for being dumb and injury prone, among other things.
"The reason he said that ... his vocabulary is limited," LaVar told TMZ Sports.
"You gotta use cuss words when you don't have no intellect."
"He's not intelligent at all. He's worried about me? He should be worrying about playing."
"I'm not going to worry about him, he's small change."
LaVar has not yet commented on last night's Sixers vs. Lakers game, but even he can't have much to say considering Embiid had a career-night in a win while Lonzo shot 1/9 from the field, scoring just two points in 21 minutes of action.
For what it's worth, Embiid also shared the photo of him and Lonzo on twitter and quickly added that he wasn't throwing any shots at the rookie point guard.
