Known hypocrite Pascal Siakam calls Joel Embiid fake, claims he’s playing dirty
Pascal Siakam was feeling himself after his first decent performance this postseason, having some choice words for Joel Embiid.
During the end of yesterday’s game, things got physical between the two when Embiid was a bit rough on a personal foul following the whistle.
Pascal Siakam on Joel Embiid
“I’m cool with the talking. I just don’t want those dirty plays. I don’t like that. Keep it basketball. At the end of the day, it’s all fake toughness”.
Siakam is no stranger to dirty calls, having pushed Embiid after a clean contested jump shot earlier this series.
The beef started when Siakam tripped Embiid on purpose during their 2019 playoff matchup.
In all honesty, Embiid’s foul wasn’t that bad with everything else considered in this series. He was going for the personal foul to force them to the line and leaned in with his shoulder a bit.
It’s not like he decked him to the ground like Jaxson Hayes. Canada is just overall the worst, celebrating this win like they just swept Philly themselves, despite being embarrassed by Embiid just a few days ago.
Hopefully, the Sixers can pick things up and kick the Raptors’ ass when they return home for Game 5 on Monday night.
