Listen, I am all for trash talking, especially in the NBA. The NBA is a great place of drama, and being able to see that drama take place on the court more than any other sports.
Yet, I believe Joel Embiid is taking it too far.

Embiid has been going at rookies even, like Mo Bamba. People that haven’t even been in the NBA yet.
What happened to the good old days where rivalries and bad blood happened on the court FIRST, then became a real feud.
I want LeBron James and Kevin Durant to feud, after playing in multiple finals… I don’t need Embiid making “playful” sarcastic trash talking via social media.
It feels immature.
If you missed what Embiid and Bamba’s trash talking consists of, here it is:
