Countrymen Joel Embiid, Pascal Siakam kick off trash talk ahead of series

Joel Embiid

Cameroonian countrymen Joel Embiid and Pascal Siakam are already starting a bit of fun ahead of the Eastern Conference semifinals between the Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors.

Embiid is a native of Yaounde, while Siakam hails from Douala. This is enough to serve as a starting point for what appears to be some friendly trash talk between the two players. Siakam kicked it off with comments he made Thursday.

On Saturday, Embiid responded, saying that he “obviously” comes from the superior city.

There’s clearly mutual respect between the two, and it’s nothing like some of the jawing Embiid engaged in against his last opponents. Things will be competitive on the court, but this appears poised to be more good-natured.
