When talking about trolling, Joel Embiid is probably the NBA’s best.
The Sixer center is notorious for his comedic and highly entertaining personality, which he often uses to taunt his opponents and haters.
And that fact remained true tonight, during his much-anticipated match-up with Andre Drummond. Before the game, the two went at each other after Embiid claimed the Pistons’ star played no defense.
Drummond retaliated with a tweet that said, “See you on Dec 2nd.”
Well, the second is basically behind us now, and it’s fair to say that Embiid won this round.
After just 14 points and 11 rebounds (compared to Embiid’s 25 and 10), Dre got ejected after acquiring his sixth foul late in the fourth quarter.
Of course, Joel Embiid took that opportunity to get the final word. He abruptly showed Drummond the way out, to which the Detroit big man walked out in defeat.
To make things worse for Drummond, his team fell to Philly 108-103, their second straight loss.
Meanwhile, “The Process” couldn’t be going stronger in Philly, and the city can finally celebrate moments like these — even if they come at the expense of others. In this case, it’s obviously not the end of this mini-rivalry, but it’s certainly the last we’ll hear from Andre about it.
