Joel Embiid Lashes Out on Instagram
Joel Embiid is the fun-loving big man for the Philadelphia 76ers, but he posted a message on Instagram after the game that he is ‘sick and fucking tired of being babied.’ Embiid cleared concussion protocol, but it appears that the Sixers want to be cautious with his facial injury. Embiid showing a little frustration almost if it’s a sign that he will not play in Game 3 and trying to force his way back on the court. Philadelphia basically had the sports version of the ‘Milkshake Duck’ happen to them overnight.

On Sunday afternoon, we were all talking about how Philly could make a run to the NBA Finals at the three seed. Cleveland didn’t look the same. No one trusts Toronto or Boston, and the Sixers came through with a huge Game 1. Then on Monday night, the Miami Heat humbled them with a dose of Dwyane Wade dropping 28 points plus an angry Embiid. I would say Embiid frustrated is a non-factor, but when you remember Philly sports talk are full of fucking psychos, this will be hot topic for the rest of the week. As someone who likes Philly but is very jealous of Philly, this warms my cold Bucks heart.
