Joel Embiid responds to NBA star’s MVP diss with monster game1 min read
Joel Embiid must’ve watched “The Last Dance,” because he just quoted Michael Jordan.
The Philadelphia 76ers big man dropped 46 points, eight assists and nine rebounds in a 120-112 loss to the Warriors Friday night. Golden State’s Draymond Green revealed what the MVP favorite said to him postgame.
« [Embiid] said, ‘You know why I played like that tonight? You said [Nikola Jokic] was the hardest person to guard in the league. So I took that personal, » Green recalled.
The former Defensive Player of the Year retracted his previous take, now claiming « Joel is the hardest guy to guard in the league. »
