Embiid trolls Hart

The NBA MVP candidate was a giant standing next to the comedian, who has always been targeted with jokes about his height.

The Ride Along movie star stands about 5-foot-2 while Embiid is listed at 7 feet. Therefore, the two standing together is quite a sight. Hart looks small, per Big Lead.

The caption that accompanied the post was hilarious.

"Father and Son watching a Super Bowl berth LOL."

Fan reaction to Embiid and Hart photo

As expected, the reactions were hilarious. Here are some of them.


"Looks like a father son duo going to their first football game."


"That’s true with just about anyone when compared to Kevin Hart."


"The talent distance is even more incredible."


"Truly incredible! I had to look this over numerous times to make sure we weren't being faked out for effect."


"I want Embiid to pick him up like a lil baby."

Embiid drops 47 against Jokic

The 28-year-old dropped 47 points, 18 rebounds for the Sixers as they beat Denver Nuggets and fellow MVP contender Nikola Jokic 126-119, per NBC Sports.

The game was dubbed the battle of MVP contenders, but it is the Cameroonian who came out on top. He is averaging NBA's best 33.8 points and 10 rebounds per game.

Many NBA fans were outraged that he missed a starting spot in the upcoming 2023 NBA All-Star in Utah.

Why Embiid missed All-Star starting spot

Sports Brief earlier reported on why the center missed a starting spot in the Eastern Conference for the 2023 NBA All-Star.

The 28-year-old ranked third among East frontcourt players in the player and media rankings, but fourth in fan voting. He accumulated 4,900,482 fan votes to Tatum's 5,221,720.

In all three voting categories (fans, media, players), Embiid finished fourth, therefore, Jayson Tatum, Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo finished in front of him and were selected instead.
