For those who loved the videos of pickup games last summer, you're in for a treat. Three of the league's brightest stars, Joel Embiid, Jayson Tatum, and Mo Bamba, squared off in various games of one-on-one, and it was the offensive showing that will get you your basketball fix for the day.

This definitely isn't a video for those who love defensive struggles, but for those who appreciate some ridiculous offensive outputs, this is right up your alley.
From Embiid's fadeaway jumpers, Bamba showing off a solid handle with a nice touch around the rim, to Tatum somehow hitting contested shots with these behemoths in his face, it's an all-around strong showing from all involved.
I have no idea how Jayson Tatum got this shot off over Mo Bamba. pic.twitter.com/6L1izA3g1u— Tom Westerholm (@Tom_NBA) July 10, 2018
Plus, Bamba didn't get put on a poster with Embiid screaming in his face. It seems much tamer than the earlier meeting.
Bamba and the Orlando Magic have a long ways to go before he'll be battling it out for Eastern Conference supremacy with Tatum and Embiid, but for now, all are content with enjoying some competitive summer competition.
