Kevin Hart has responded to Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid who brutally trolled him by calling his son on an Instagram post.

Embiid posted a picture of the two together at the NFC Championship Game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers. In the photo, Embiid towered over everybody around him including Hart.

The comedian and movie star looked tiny standing next to the 7-foot-2 center. Hart is 5-foot-2, therefore the height difference was pretty obvious. Fans joined the NBA All-Star in trolling Hart.

Hart is a Philly native while Embiid was drafted by the Sixers in 2014 and has stayed in the city since then, prompting him to start following and supporting the Eagles, per Sportsrush.

Hart has been courtside to watch the Sixers plenty of times. He was courtside when the team won a first-round matchup against the Miami Heat four years ago and the two celebrated together. As they embraced, Embiid carried him like a baby.

Hart responds to Embiid

A few hours after, the 28-year-old NBA star's post, the Ride Along movie star, responded with his own height, dismissing Embiid's jokes.

He said that the two were giants and the angle at which the photo was taken was more important in a hilarious Instagram post.

"I don’t know what y’all see…but I see 2 (expletive) GIANTS!!!! Swipe right and see the truth….it’s all about the angle!!!! Long live Da Kid AKA Lil Swag AKA ComedicRockstar AKA Hustle Hart #LiveLoveLaugh ….P.S My fit was tho Fly Eagles"

Hart can hope that the Sixers bring similar success in the NBA. They are doing well so far. They are second in the Eastern Conference and have won their last seven games.

Why Embiid is not an All-Star starter

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.
