Caris LeVert thought Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons were being ‘disrespectful’ during Embiid’s apology to Jarrett Allen

Caris LeVert, Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons

Brooklyn Nets swingman Caris LeVert and the rest of his teammates weren’t big fans of what Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid and point forward Ben Simmons did during their Game 2 postgame press conference.

Embiid and Simmons laughed while Embiid was “apologizing” to Nets big man Jarrett Allen. Embiid viciously elbowed Allen in Game 2 and was called for a Flagrant 1 foul.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, LeVert says he and the Nets found Embiid and Simmons to be “disrespectful” towards Allen:

Jared Dudley similarly wasn’t a fan of what happened:

Game 3 of this series is on Thursday in Brooklyn. It’s safe to say Caris LeVert, Jared Dudley and the Nets are going to be motivated to get some revenge against Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and the Sixers.

Thursday will be the first home playoff game for the Nets since 2015. The Barclays Center is going to be electric, as Brooklyn will look to take a 2-1 series lead and maintain home-court advantage.

Should Embiid and Simmons have been laughing during their postgame presser? Probably not. The hit Allen took from Embiid was very dangerous. Luckily for the Nets, Allen didn’t suffer a concussion and was able to stay in the game. Expect the big man to be pumped up for Game 3 with his home fans behind him.
