Joel Embiid Hilariously Trolls Russell Westbrook After Posterizing Dunk On Instagram


You knew it was coming.

Embiid -- who has built a reputation as one of the NBA's biggest trolls -- got into it with reigning MVP Russell Westbrook on Sunday night in their clash, which resulted in OKC defeating Philadelphia 122-112. The two All-Stars has multiple run-ins, including Embiid dunking over Westbrook and staring him down, and Russ returning the favor at the final buzzer while dribbling the clock out.

Many thought Westbrook had the last laugh with the stare down and subsequent victory, but The Process proved he's a master at social media roasts.

The dunk could definitely have used a CSI cleanup crew after the fact, as Russ had attempted to take a charge on the 76ers center and failed, and getting jammed on was his reward, falling to the floor.

Even though the two won't be facing each other for the rest of the regular season, the two will be going up against each other during All-Star weekend in the All-Star weekend, and could very well add a hint of rivalry to proceedings.
