1 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. »
