Give Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid credit for wasting no time trolling the Boston Celtics following their Game 7 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals.

One can only imagine what would have happened in the Eastern Conference Finals if it was actually the Philadelphia 76ers facing the Cleveland Cavaliers instead of the Boston Celtics, but at least the team still has plenty to look forward when it comes to the future.

Thanks to the rise of young stars in Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, the Sixers are in a great position to be a serious contender in the Eastern Conference for years to come, although it will be interesting to see if they can add another superstar in free agency.

Speaking of Embiid, everybody is quite familiar with the Philadelphia star being one of the best players in the NBA when it comes to social media. Whether it involves poking fun at Aron Baynes and his man bun or simply trash talking with players like Hassan Whiteside, Embiid has never been afraid to speak his mind about anything, which is part of the reason why he’s such a fan favorite.

With Boston losing for the first time at home in the playoffs during the worst possible time in Game 7 against Cleveland, Embiid wasted no time chiming in on Twitter about the outcome. Based off what Embiid said below, it’s safe to say there will be a lot of Celtics fans that won’t be a big fan of Embiid since it’s going to take a while to get over a loss like that to the Cavaliers.

Yes, Boston fans will most likely use the perfect response of how Philadelphia couldn’t even make it to the Eastern Conference Finals, but this is still hilarious on Embiid’s end. At the end of the day, the Celtics have nobody other than themselves to blame when it comes to losing Game 7 at home against the Cavaliers with a trip to the NBA Finals on the line.

As frustrating as Boston and their fans may be feeling at the moment, the good news for this team is similar to Philadelphia, all signs point to this squad being a strong contender for years to come.

When looking at everything the Celtics had to overcome in the injury department, seeing them even be in the position they were at one win away from a trip to the NBA Finals was truly amazing.

Of course, Embiid and the Sixers certainly aren’t going to make it easy since they’re going to use this past season as a learning experience as well to get better. Knowing Embiid, this won’t be the last of the trash talking when it comes to Boston, and Philadelphia shouldn’t want it any other way.
