Andre Drummond and Joel Embiid have a history — Embiid said before the season Drummond doesn’t play any defense and can’t shoot. Drummond fired back Embiid should work on staying healthy and playing in back-to-backs before he talks.
All of it carried over Tuesday night when the 76ers traveled to Detroit to play the Pistons.
The two were going back-and-forth during the game, with Embiid constantly talking, telling Drummond “you can’t guard me.” Which had some truth, Embiid dropped 33 points and grabbed 11 boards in the game.
Then late, Embiid flopped and the referee bought it, tossing Drummond (for a second technical).
After the game, Embiid wasn’t done talking, saying of Drummond “I feel like I own a lot of real estate in his head.”
Drummond responded in the comments on IG:
Drummond also would like to point out the scoreboard. The Pistons got the win to stay undefeated on the young season.
