Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns are two of the biggest, best basketball players in the NBA. On Wednesday night, they got in a fight. It was pretty funny.
Here it is:

Are there high-res photos from our friends at Getty? You bet ...
Yeah, Ben Simmons had KAT in a choke hold.
And yeah ... it looks like KAT tapped. Yikes.

Embiid just laughed it off.

And then egged on the crowd when he got ejected.

So, a couple things. First off, here’s some of what led up to it:
best part is right before the fight embiid got KAT again and then doubled him and made him lose the ball pic.twitter.com/E35GQMG5Th— Drew Corrigan (@Dcorrigan50) October 31, 2019
But also, remember last year? Embiid got KAT on the court and then again on Instagram and then AGAIN in the comments.

This is the best thing to ever happen to Sixers Twitter.

Can’t think of anything I like watching as much as Mike Scott likes watching this fight replay. pic.twitter.com/0gBn1MLoEp— Spike Eskin (@SpikeEskin) October 31, 2019

Here’s what Embiid said after the game:
Joel Embiid says at the end of the day it all just basketball, but with regard to the KAT scuffle: “That’s what I’m good at. I like to get in peoples mind.”— Kyle Neubeck (@KyleNeubeck) October 31, 2019
Also drops a Mike Scott homage: “First of all, I ain’t no bitch.”
Embiid loved the fan appreciation for him as he left the game tonight. “I was built for this city and they were built for me... you gotta be a Broad Street bully.”— Kyle Neubeck (@KyleNeubeck) October 31, 2019
And he had more to say on IG, too.
