Joel Embiid responds to NBA star’s MVP diss with monster game
Joel Embiid must have watched ‘The Last Dance’ because he just quoted Michael Jordan.
The Philadelphia 76ers big man dropped 46 points, eight assists and nine rebounds in a 120-112 loss to the Warriors on Friday night. Golden State’s Draymond Green revealed what the MVP favorite told him after the game.
“(Embiid) said, ‘You know why I played like that tonight? You said (Nikola Jokic) was the hardest person to keep in the league. So I took it personal,” Green recalled.
The former Defensive Player of the Year has reversed his previous stance, now saying “Joel is the hardest guy to keep in the league.”
