Remember when JoJo and LaVar Ball were exchanging shots in the media? In June 2017, during the height of LaVar’s rise, Embiid tweeted that he wants Ben Simmons to “dunk on (Lonzo) so hard.”
Please dunk on him so hard that his daddy runs on the court to save him.. https://t.co/cMvt5RYiSQ— Joel Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) June 22, 2017
As you’d imagine, LaVar didn’t let that comment slide. During a radio interview, he said the Sixers needed get their “asses off the goddamn tweeter and get in the gym.” Embiid quickly responded with an Instagram video in which he said, “man, f*** LaVar Ball.”
Yep. This really happened.
The league fined Embiid $10,000 for the video. A few months later, Embiid tweeted a photo of himself and LaVar looking friendly.
There’s been no negative buzz between the two since.
