Joel Embiid cracks Warriors 3-1 joke and could not stop laughing
Joel Embiid has never been shy about throwing around trash talk and jokes wherever possible, and that was the case on Saturday.
Not only did he throw shade at Jared Dudley in his interview after the Philadelphia 76ers’ Game 4 win over the Brooklyn Nets, but he also cracked a Golden State Warriors joke in his postgame press conference. The best part was how Embiid — and teammate Jimmy Butler — couldn’t stop laughing after making the joke.

The Warriors infamously blew a 3-1 Finals lead to the Cavaliers in 2016 before regrouping to win two in a row with Kevin Durant, prompting LeBron James’ move away from Cleveland to Los Angeles.
Embiid’s Sixers are now up 3-1 in their first-round playoff series against the Nets. Game 5 of the series will be on Tuesday in Philadelphia.
