We’d like a Philadelphia 76ers vs. Brooklyn Nets collection within the postseason. For the trolling, if not the expertise. These groups squared off Wednesday evening with solely Philly at full power since Kevin Durant continues to be sidelined for Brooklyn. Though he wasn’t on the courtroom, Durant managed to make his presence felt by way of Twitter. Massive shock. The 2-time NBA champ took to Twitter to specific his dissatisfaction with Sixers star Joel Embiid’s DX crotch chop, #SuckIt celebration following an acrobatic layup.
With each groups at full power, we’d be taking a look at a chippy but hilariously immature seven-game collection with loads of crotch-chopping and sensitivity to go round. Consistent with the late Nineties professional wrestling theme, this matchup can be just like the D-Generation X-Nation of Domination feud for all of the old-school WWF/WWE followers.
The NBA is reminding us of the WWF
These two factions weren’t the primary occasion on the time however have been the very best on the cardboard some nights. The identical might be mentioned in regards to the Sixers and Nets regardless of their present standings. Boston and Milwaukee (when wholesome) are seen as the category of the Eastern Conference. Primarily based on matchups, the Celtics and Bucks are the primary occasion within the East. The Sixers and Nets are good however not fairly pretty much as good because the others — becoming for the undercard. In ’98, that was the story of The Rock/NOD and Triple H/DX. Each are excellent, however not on Stone Chilly Steve Austin, or The Undertaker’s stage.
Embiid would be on Durant’s last nerve with his hip thrusting and trolling nature. Durant probably gets a kick out of it to some extent, but he’s all business on the court and seems to smile rarely. Joel “Troel” is having fun most of the time while dominating in a way we haven’t seen from too many big men. The bonus of trash-talking Ben Simmons for potentially seven games probably excites Embiid.
Hopefully, these teams finish the season ranked No. 2 and No. 3 in the East, so we get that second-round series. That is, if the Nets don’t slip up again in the first round. Durant vs. Embiid would be comical for an entire series, and I’m there for all of it. Every KD mid-range shot right down to every trolling crotch chop of Embiid’s following a tough basket. Kyrie Irving and James Harden can be afterthoughts behind Embiid, Durant, and Simmons being consistently taunted by Joel. NBA, please make this occur. Do no matter it takes, however we want this in our lives.
