Embiid Tells Simmons To Dunk On Lonzo So Hard, LaVar Has To Save Him

Philadelphia 76ers Media Day

Unlike any other player before him, Lonzo Ball enters the league with the biggest target on his back.  It’s not because of what he did or said.  Rather, he has his father LaVar Ball to thank for that.

Shortly after being selected #2 overall in the NBA Draft, LaVar boldly stated that his son would “take the Lakers to the playoffs his first year.”

Philadelphia 76ers forward Ben Simmons appeared to throw a bit of shade following that comment.


His 76ers teammate Joel Embiid then followed that up with this golden comment.
