It is not exactly a secret that Boston Celtics veteran guard Marcus Smart and Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid have beefed with each other over the years — and it isn’t a recent phenomena.

The pair have feuded on all sorts of social media, in NBA games, and even going all the way back to when both of them were still in the collegiate ranks. They are both instigators who use getting under your skin as a weapon on the court as part of their repertoire. But what is the source of the ire between the two? This is the topic under consideration in the video by SB Nation embedded below.

Check out the video by Secret Base to hear their take on the beef between the two players, where it comes from and why it continues.

And with the Celtics set to host the 76ers on Tuesday, we may yet see some more of it on the court soon as well.
