Joel Embiid is embracing his villain persona as Philadelphia 76ers fans continue to boo him. He brought the villain energy late in Tuesday night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers when he got tangled up with Marcus Morris, and after a few small taps, the two got into it.
Morris isn't one to back down, but this was a bit much after Embiid just touched his chest. The new Clipper may have been frustrated about the score and his night was made even worse when he tried to drive on Embiid shortly after.
This will be a game for Morris to forget considering he started an unnecessary scuffle and wound up on the floor after trying to play hero ball. Oh, and his team lost, to top it all off.
