Joel Embiid is not concerned that his trolling and trash talk will make him a target of other players.
Embiid had a recent run-in with Donovan Mitchell and Kyle Kuzma attempted to dunk on him last week.
“Oh, no,” Embiid quickly answered. “I’m not worried about that. I mean, if those guys, they want to get their feelings hurt, if they’re not strong mentally, that’s not my fault. I think when it comes down to it, if we’ve all got to square up, I mean, I’m 7-foot-2 and I’m a big dude. So I don’t think you want to try me. And I’m African, too.”
Embiid has one of the NBA’s most prominent social media presences.
