The feud between LaVar Ball and Joel Embiid doesn’t appear to be going away any time soon. In fact, it might just be heating up.
As most are likely aware, Embiid participated in some rather pointed trolling on draft night after Ball said the Lakers were a playoff team following his son’s selection at No. 2 overall. Then he got into some hot water after using a naughty word to describe his feelings about Ball.
Embiid has since made it clear he had no issue with the fine and appears to think it was money well spent.
“I think most people have been wanting to say that, but I guess I was the guy to say that. I’m glad I said it,” Embiid said. “Social media is just about having fun.”
Ball had something to say about that, of course. And in typical Big Baller fashion, it wasn’t nice.

We can’t wait to hear what Embiid has to say about this. One thing we know for certain is that he’s not going to shut his mouth. He’s one of the most outgoing people on social media and seems to have a legitimate beef with Ball.
Isn’t the NBA offseason just the best? And now that Ball is part of it all, the drama will never stop. Believe that.
