Later in the night, Karl-Anthony Towns posted on Instagram “All Bark & No Bite” and included a photo of Embiid crying after Philadelphia’s loss to the Raptors in the second round of last season’s playoffs (warning: profanity in all embedded social media):
Of course, Embiid responded:
Towns walked right into that one. It’s just tough to talk trash after a blowout loss and with only one career playoff appearance, a fairly quick first-round loss.
It’s also tough to win these battles with Embiid, who’s an expert trash-talker and certainly not done.
