Drake Mocked Joel Embiid

Way back in game 3, I remember feeling like we’d reached the end of an emotional roller coaster. The Sixers were well on their way to their second straight win over Toronto. Then it happened. Joel Embiid threw down a windmill and the wind got knocked out of me. I’m not a killjoy, but I had a sinking feeling that once Toronto tied up the series, that lone highlight could be the defining moment of overconfidence the Raptors needed to rally around. Then they won game 4, a game that the Sixers flat out blew. Then tonight happened. People seemed surprised that Toronto could exert their dominance over Philly, as if the previous 14 matchups over the past seven years meant nothing. Just when you thought tonight’s 125-89 drubbing wasn’t bad enough, this happened:

Freaking Drake, man. He’s like that pimple at the end of your nose. Sometimes you notice it developing under your skin, and every once in a while it pops out. Here’s hoping the Sixers win game 6, so that upon returning to Toronto, Boban can go Gregor Clegane on Toronto’s viper.

  1. Drake actually shows up and does his job when he’s supposed to.

    Maybe Embiid should try that.

  2. I need a kinker side bar on possible trade scenarios for Embiid vs. Simmons, including pros/cons.

    Also – when did everyone forget that our bench actually does suck?

  3. Imagine how hated embiid will be in this city after they lose Thursday

    1. Its going to be rough for him and Ben for sure. Jimmy Butler is the only one who might get a pass for being good in this series, but who knows if he stays. Imagine if they get blown out at home in Game 6…..ouch….their social media’s will be a war scene

  4. “People seemed surprised that Toronto could exert their dominance over Philly, as if the previous 14 matchups over the past seven years meant nothing.”

    What? They do mean nothing. The Sixers roster as it’s currently constructed has only played this Raptors team as it’s currently constructed for real in this series. Another dumb Russ take, just like the “AI is a poor man’s Russell Westbrook” bullshit from earlier this season.

  5. I think I need to question why this is even worth giving three seconds to, let alone a whole rant. Drake is more like that guy that wants to annoy you but matters so little, you don’t even notice him most of the time. And the occasional time you do, you don’t even give it a second thought. Kinda like the kid in your class that’s not funny or annoying but still tries.
