Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid has an impressive mix of power and footwork. Trey Burke and the New York Knicks saw both in one play on Wednesday.
With Embiid just outside of the paint, he made a slight move to his right. Burke bit on that just in time to see Embiid do a hard cut and spin to his life. Embiid then threw down a monster dunk unopposed.
That is the perfect combination of absolutely beautiful and beautifully vicious.
Burke getting matched up on Embiid was always going to be a mismatch. We can only hope that Burke’s family wasn’t watching this game.
