NBA fines Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid for harsh comments about LaVar Ball

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid’s public feud with LaVar Ball drained his bank account.

The NBA on Saturday fined Embiid $10,000 for “for using inappropriate language on social media.”

In an Instagram Live video directed at Ball, the father of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, Embiid said, “(Expletive) LaVar Ball.”

Embiid’s words were in response to Ball saying Embiid was injury prone. Ball responded to Embiid saying he hoped someone dunk so hard on him “that his daddy runs on the court to save him.”

The back-and-forth continued with Ball saying Embiid was not intelligent and only knows three words.
