The Philadelphia 76ers are in Oklahoma City playing the Thunder right now. It’s a pretty big game, but it was Joel Embiid bringing the thunder over Russell Westbrook in the first quarter that made us pay attention.

Just check out this drive and dunk, right in the face of Westbrook. Then note Embiid staring him down afterward.

That’s just filthy. It’s disrespectful. And we love it.

Keep it coming, young man.

And the best part was, a bit later Westbrook tried to return the favor and was…not successful.
