Joel Embiid is nothing if not a phenomenal entertainer.

On Friday night as the Philadelphia 76ers hosted the New Orleans Pelicans, Embiid made a tremendous play to block Nikola Mirotic’s shot. Then he showed his opponent the ultimate disrespect by doing a shimmy over him and signaling for him to head to the locker room.

That’s just filthy. That’s plain old rude behavior. And I cannot get enough of it.

Embiid is known for his trash talking. He’s become the NBA’s premier artist in this department. And like a fine wine, his craft appears to be getting better with age.
