Joel Embiid and LaVar ball are two of the biggest trash talkers in basketball.
Please dunk on him so hard that his daddy runs on the court to save him.. https://t.co/cMvt5RYiSQ

Lavar, not one to let something like that slide, went on Philadelphia’s 97.5 to give his personal take on Embiid’s injury history.
“I say when you don’t win, and don’t make the playoffs, and don’t even stay on the court long enough, that’s the best thing you can do, is tweet, make some stuff,” Ball said.
Embiid responded with some choice, not-so-safe-for-work words at Ball’s expense.
And once the season rolled around, Embiid took his best shot at Lonzo after dominating the Lakers in L.A. on a night that Ball struggled.

It’s nice to see that it’s not all troll tweets and F- bombs between these two.
