Joel Embiid and the Sixers have been eliminated from the players, but that hasn’t stopped Embiid from talking that talk.
During Game 4 of the Cavs-Celtics series, Embiid tweeted out the following:
Man bun is in NBA just to get dunked on— Joel Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) May 22, 2018
The tweet is referring to Aron Baynes of the Boston Celtics, who Embiid had a few spats with during the Sixers and Celtics Eastern Conference Semifinals playoff matchup.
Most responses to Embiid’s remark will fall in one of two categories: it’s funny and charming or it’s lame and petty.
Lame and petty because Joel Embiid is vacationing in the Bahamas and Aron Baynes is still playing in the NBA playoffs after his team eliminated JoJo and the Sixers.
Funny and charming because Embiid is just having fun. I mean, it’s Twitter. It was a harmless combination of 10 words.
At this time, I’d like to remind you that Embiid did this to Baynes just a handful of days ago:

It has already been too long since we’ve had Sixers basketball.
