It's Honestly Impressive That The Only Way The Sixers Can Beat The Knicks Is Joel Embiid Being The Dirtiest Player In The NBA

Gotta hand it to Joel Embiid here, it's rare we get this many highlights of a dirty game. But when you have an entire mixtape of dirty plays including one of the dirtiest ones you'll ever see by grabbing Mitchell Robinson's ankle like that, it shows how desperate the Sixers are. This is what they have to stoop to in order to beat the Knicks. I mean he delivered every dirty play in the book. Kicking guys in the nuts, using his ass to throw people out, grabbing ankles, trying to fight people. Impressive really when you think about it. 

Is this how the Sixers filed a grievance? That's the real question here. Because I'd like to file a grievance about their grievance. Apparently if you file a grievance you can do whatever you want and not get punished for it. This is why Thibs cares about the 46-minute report, not the last 2 minute report.

Am I pissed? Of course. Embiid should have been ejected, any role player gets kicked out without hesitation here. Any player who didn't have an entire organization cry their eyes out about losing game 2 gets ejected without hesitation here. I mean even Draymond doesn't have a game highlight reel like this. But this is what Embiid needs to do just in order to beat the Knicks. That's a badge of honor seeing the Sixers star admit the Knicks are the better team. I'll say this too, I don't think the Sixers want to play this game. If we can play as dirty as Embiid there's no one in the league that will embrace it more than a Thibs team. 

Now to show I'm fair, this came out last night

No one wants to see that. Hope Embiid recovers just fine. But this is about his dirty plays last night. Dirtiest game I've seen in a long, long time. Proof that's the only way the Sixers could beat the Knicks. 2-1 says so.
