Of course being the undisputed social media star that Embiid is, he roasted the 2018 6th overall pick in the comment section. He also had the last laugh since his team won, 120-114.

But at the end of the day, both big man are still good friends. Even their trainor Drew Hanlen found this friendly competition entertaining.
