The Philadelphia 76ers will travel to Memphis on Tuesday night to face off against the Grizzles. The match up should be the biggest test of the pre-season for Joel Embiid, the highly touted rookie who will finally return from two years of injury. He’ll face off against two time All Star Marc Gasol, who is also returning from injury.
But Embiid seems more concerned with Memphis’ new recruit, Chandler Parsons. Parsons posted a video of himself practicing some shooting before the game. Embiid quickly showed up to roast him in the comments.

You can add this to the list of reasons why Embiid is the king of social media, along with his attempts to get with Kim Kardashian and Rihanna through Instagram. It’s likely all in good fun, but it’ll be interesting to see how the two face off against each other on Tuesday night.
