Hassan Whiteside Claps Back at Joel Embiid After Being Called Out on Twitter

Hassan Whiteside Claps Back at Joel Embiid After Being Called Out on Twitter

Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside and Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid went head to head on the court on Friday and took their beef to Twitter after the game.

During the matchup, which Miami lost 119-95, Whiteside got into early foul trouble and Embiid used that opportunity to talk trash to the Heat bench. Whiteside was called for three fouls in the first 2:21 including this one drawn by Embiid.

After the game, Whiteside responded to the tweet which set off an intense back-and-forth with Embiid.

Embiid, who scored only five points while shooting 1-of-7 from the field in the game, called out Whiteside in a series of tweets.

Whiteside responded by pointing out the fact that Embiid has only played 31 games in his whole injury-plagued career.

This is not the first time the two centers have gone after each other on social media. Last season, Embiid called Whiteside “BBQ chicken” after a loss on Instagram.

These two centers will face off again on Feb. 2nd during the regular season.
