The Philadelphia 76ers are feeling themselves following the acquisitions of Tobias Harris and Boban Marjanovic at the trade deadline. So were the Los Angeles Lakers after defeating the Boston Celtics at the buzzer on Thursday night.
However, it was the 76ers who kept that good feeling going, as they blew out the Lakers on Sunday by a score of 143-120.
As all NBA fans know, Joel Embiid has a knack for trolling the opposition. Well, his team's official Twitter account followed suit.
This past week, microphones picked up on LeBron James imposing words of wisdom on his young teammates: "Anytime y'all fall, stay down. Your brother will come pick you up."
It didn't take too long for someone else to use that statement to troll James and his Lakers teammates.
Throw in the damn towel! That's straight up savage from the 76ers.
With Philadelphia on a roll since the trade deadline, expect to see more and more trash talk. The team looks scary good and is looking to continue to build on that momentum in order to represent the Eastern Conference in this year's NBA Finals.
