Isaiah Thomas wants Joel Embiid, Karl-Anthony Towns to break out the gloves to settle feud
Washington Wizards guard Isaiah Thomas has chimed in on the whole Joel Embiid-Karl-Anthony Towns feud that has quickly become an all-out war on the mean streets of social media. According to the two-time All-Star, he believes that these two bigs would be better off if they settled their dispute the old fashioned way.

Thomas is obviously not a fan of feuding in social media, and he was not afraid to let his feelings known. In his mind, the feisty 5-foot-9 point guard seems to think that all this internet ish is soft, and that Embiid and Towns would be better off if they settled their score man-to-man.
For what it’s worth, we ought to give Thomas some air time, especially considering his outstanding play on Wednesday night. The 30-year-old had a vintage performance in Washington’s 159-158 defeat against the Houston Rockets, logging 17 points (on 6-of-11 shooting), two three-pointers, two rebounds, 10 assists, and a steal in 24 minutes of Washington’s bench.
Defense was not exactly on full display from either teams on the evening, and this was a great opportunity for Thomas to get things going for his new side. That’s now back-to-back big games for the former MVP candidate, following Saturday’s 16-point (with four treys) and five-assist performance against the San Antonio Spurs.
Thomas appears to be as healthy as he’s ever been over the past few years, and so long as he is able to stay on the floor, he should be provided with a significant role on a struggling Wizards side.
