Joel Embiid and Hassan Whiteside are both awesome on Twitter.

But the two got into with each other on the court and Twitter Friday night.


After Embiid’s Philadelphia 76ers beat Whiteside’s Miami Heat pretty convincingly, 119-95, during preseason the two had some words to exchange through social media.

Embiid may have been talking on the court, but he only went 1-for-7 from the field against Whiteside and The Heat.



Naturally, Embiid had a response for Whiteside.




The last tweet made a reference to Kevin Durant using a fake Twitter account to defend himself.

Whiteside came back with a jab where it hurts Embiid the most, being able to stay on the court.


As of Friday night, Embiid did some research and tweeted out the last word of the night.

Hopefully this beef will be longer than 140 characters and we’ll get to see the two really battle on the court this season.
