Joel Embiid trolls Sixers fans with ‘unhappy’ tweet

Joel Embiid, Sixers

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid almost gave Sixers fans a heart attack with his latest cryptic tweet.

On Wednesday, while the Miami Heat are playing the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 2 of their playoff series, Embiid took to Twitter to say that he is “still really unhappy.”

Of course, this prompted fear among the Sixers fan base. After all, Embiid recently hinted that he misses being on the same team as Jimmy Butler. With that said, his latest Tweet could be taken as his way to encapsulate his feelings.

It is also a funny tie-in to one of his commercials.

However, before things got out of hand and rumors spark that he want to leave the Sixers, Joel Embiid followed up with a couple more tweets that implies he’s just trolling his fans.

Of course, there might be a kernel of truth in his tweet and he’s just avoiding any criticism since he has expressed his displeasure publicly.

Moreover, after watching Butler hung 40 points on the Bucks in Game 1, it’s hard to blame JoJo for feeling bad that the Sixers prioritized Tobias Harris over the veteran swingman.

Embiid and Butler were Sixers teammates last year, coming within a single game of the Eastern Conference finals. Unfortunately for Embiid, it seemed unlikely Butler would have ever considered returning.

Butler has been very vocal about the Sixers organization and head coach Brett Brown, though he has said numerous times he has nothing but love for Embiid.

Regardless, Embiid can only sit and wonder what might have been as Butler and the Heat play for a spot in the conference finals.
