Joel Embiid Says He’s Glad He Told LaVar Ball ‘F*ck You’ On Instagram


A little lighter in the pockets, but Joel Embiid has no regrets about what he told LaVar Ball.

Shortly after the NBA fined the Philadelphia 76ers center $10K for saying “F–k LaVar Ball” on Instagram, Embiid told the Variety Sports and Entertainment Panel on Thursday he was “glad” he said what he said.

“I think most people have been wanting to say that,” he said, in video captured by Sports Illustrated‘s Avery Yang. “I’m glad I said it.”


Not long after the Instagram video surfaced, LaVar Ball responded and questioned Embiid’s intelligence.

“You gotta use cuss words when you don’t have no intellect,” he said, per TMZ Sports

“He’s not intelligent at all. He’s worried about me? He should be worrying about playing. I got three words for him: Can’t. Play. At. All. Oh shoot, that’s four.”
