Joel Embiid savagely responds to John Collins wanting to dunk on him
Philadelphia 76ers star big man Joel Embiid is back to doing whatever he wants and trolling other NBA guys. This time, Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins was his latest target.
After Collins said he really wants to dunk on Embiid, the Sixers center and NBA All-Star savagely responded with a video of him putting Collins on a poster:

With no NBA games on, fans are relying on Twitter for their excitement.
Luckily for them, it appears Embiid is truly back to being his old savage self after starting off the 2019-20 season by saying he wasn’t going to do these type of things anymore.
Embiid and the Sixers went 39-26 before the campaign was suspended due to the coronavirus. JoJo was averaging 23.4 points, 11.8 rebounds and 3.1 assists for the Sixers, who were in sixth place in the NBA’s Eastern Conference standings.
For the Hawks, Collins put up 21.6 points, 10.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists prior to play being suspended.
The coronavirus pandemic is a serious global issue right now. The NBA suspended play last Wednesday after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert got a positive coronavirus test result. Jazz shooting guard Donovan Mitchell, Detroit Pistons forward Christian Wood, Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant and Boston Celtics combo guard Marcus Smart have contracted the virus as well.
The NBA would like to resume games in the summer. However, with the way this virus is spreading, no one knows if that’s going to happen.
