Sixers Center Joel Embiid fined $10,000 for “inappropriate language on social media”


By now, Joel Embiid’s growing feud with LaVar and Lonzo Ball has been well documented. Fans have been quick to support Embiid’s sassy social media remarks when talking about the Father of this year’s second overall pick, and Lonzo himself. However, the dominant big man may have gone a step too far in a recent Instagram Live.

Embiid said “F–K LaVar Ball” during the stream, which is most likely what has landed him a hefty $10,000 fine from the NBA for “inappropriate language on social media”. Not cool NBA, not cool.

However what is very, very, cool…is LaVar’s response to Embiid’s comments prior to his son’s Summer League debut.

The $10,000 fine may not seem fair, but Embiid got the last laugh with a string of sassy tweets targeted at the Laker, who had anything but a smooth first outing in last night’s Summer League game.

What will happen next in the LaVarmpire diaries (patent pending)? Who knows…
