Post players don’t talk a lot of smack when their team has a 4-10 record. But Joel Embiid is not most players.
He’s the clear bright spot of an otherwise bad 76ers line up, and he’s become known for being just as entertaining off the court with all his social media antics.
So when the Sixers picked up their 4th win of the season after beating the Heat, Embiid rushed to instagram to mock the man he played against, Hassan Whiteside. Both had excellent games, with Embiid scoring 20 points and Whiteside bagging 32. But the Sixers prevailed, and Embiid got to roast Whiteside on instagram.
BBQ Chicken is of course a reference to Shaq on Inside the NBA, who calls anyone who got cooked “BBQ Chicken.” Embiid may be a new comer in the league, but he’s a veteran when it comes to social media.
