LaVar Ball, Joel Embiid squash beef, share the love after thrilling Lakers-Sixers game

Joel Embiid and LaVar ball are two of the biggest trash talkers in basketball.

And they have had each other in their sights since Lonzo Ball got drafted to the Lakers this summer prompting Embiid to make this friendly suggestion to rookie teammate Ben Simmons.


Lavar, not one to let something like that slide, went on Philadelphia’s 97.5  to give his personal take on Embiid’s injury history.

“I say when you don’t win, and don’t make the playoffs, and don’t even stay on the court long enough, that’s the best thing you can do, is tweet, make some stuff,” Ball said.

Embiid responded with some choice, not-so-safe-for-work words at Ball’s expense.

And once the season rolled around, Embiid took his best shot at Lonzo after dominating the Lakers in L.A. on a night that Ball struggled.

Well, the two apparently made peace after the Lakers edged the 76ers in a thriller Thursday with a late game-winner from Brandon Ingram on a clutch pass from Ball.


It’s nice to see that it’s not all troll tweets and F- bombs between these two.
