C.J. McCollum calls Joel Embiid’s social media posts ‘unnecessary’.
The reaction from around the league is still gathering on what transpired on Wednesday night in between Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid and Minnesota Timberwolves huge male Karl-Anthony Towns. The 2 titans entered a brawl that brought in reactions from Josh Richardson, Ben Simmons, and even a former teammate in Jimmy Butler got involved.
The Sixers next challenger is the Portland Trail Blazers to start a 4 video game West Coast trip where they will be missing out on Embiid due to a 2 game suspension from the event.
Blazers guard C.J. McCollum has actually a podcast called The PullUp Pod with co-host Jordan Schultz and he was not impressed with the social networks posts and the chirping after it was all over.
I just think it's unneeded. All of us know each other, if you truly have a problem with someone, we can get the gloves. I have boxing gloves, a lot of groups have boxing gloves, and you can set up; litteraly a time to truly settle your disagreement. In the tunnel, in a personal location in someone's house or somebody's backyard, you can literally get headgear and handle this like we did growing up, with your fists ... I do not comprehend why it got to the point where they were addressing each other on social networks. That's how you understand it was just anger.
According to a report, neither Embiid nor Towns have any displeasure towards each other and it was just a mind game for Embiid. So perhaps McCollum has a point there about it not being major considering that it went to social networks.
McCollum and the Blazers will face-off with the Sixers on Saturday at 10:00 p.m. EST from the Moda Center.
