Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid is one of the absolute best things in sports right now.
The third pick in the 2014 NBA draft is downright hilarious on social media, and one of the few people in the league who could hype a preseason game as a must-see event.
That’s just what Embiid did when he dropped a funny note on Chandler Parsons’ Instagram page:

Parsons and Embiid are friends, so this isn’t some trash-talking event where fans can expect to see the two clash on the court. It’s more in good fun, which isn’t a bad alternative by any means.
After missing the first two years of his career, Embiid has shown promise over three exhibitions so far, posting a high of 12 points and four rebounds in a game while playing minimal minutes.
The Philadelphia 76ers and Memphis Grizzlies play Tuesday night.
