Boy oh boy. In Joel Embiid’s post game interview following the come back win in OT against the Utah Jazz, Embiid name dropped Sixers beat writer Keith Pompey to set him straight.
Joel Embiid:— Tom West (@TomWestNBA) March 4, 2021
“Well, first of all, according to Keith Pompey, I’m scared of [Rudy Gobert] and I’m scared of top centers. So, as we saw tonight, it looks like I was very, very scared of him. So, yeah, keep talking."
This is the year of Philly athletes clapping back on the nonsense some of this city’s media puts out and I love it. First Jake Voracek, now Embiid. Keep it coming fellas.
