If NBA basketball was played on Twitter, Embiid and Whiteside would meet in the Eastern Conference Finals

Embiid talks big, but NBA games are won on the court, not sitting in a hospital room tweeting.

NBA: Preseason-Miami Heat at Philadelphia 76ers Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Joel Embiid is doing his best to become the Draymond Green of the Philadelphia 76ers, that is if he makes it through the season.

Embiid went 1 for 7 against the Miami Heat, and Hassan Whiteside quickly posted those numbers on his Twitter account after the game.

Embiid draws a foul and tells the Heat to take Whiteside out

The media won’t show that

Funny how y’all don’t show me telling him the same and 1-7 shooting or the first 2 flops I mean blocks. Lol y’all fan boys I swear

Dude they had to take your ass out or you would’ve fouled out in 5 min... And we’re talking about Preseason, not regular season.....

And keep caring about stats and not your team successs.....your +/- was ass

My bad y’all , I thought I was using my burner account

That was a reference to Kevin Durant’s goof on social media.

there you go

Whiteside waiting for the regular season to start, when the games get real.

@JoelEmbiid 31 games in 3yrs Hopefully I get to see you regular season

Anybody can tweet trash-talk, but who can back them up with wins during the regular season?
