Joel Embiid could have retracted his recent comments about LaVar Ball and his family.
Instead, the former Kansas standout kept piling on the NBA rookie guard who it seems everybody loves to hate.
Even after the NBA fined Embiid for saying “F*** LaVar Ball” on Instagram, Embiid remained undeterred. He told the Variety Sports and Entertainment Panel that he was “glad” he made his comments.
“I think most people have been wanting to say that,” Embiid said on a video by Sports Illustrated‘s Avery Yang. “I’m glad I said it.”
