It only took five games for the Celtics to best the favorited Sixers in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. But that didn’t stop Philadelphia big man Joel Embiid from dissing the Celtics center Aron Baynes during Boston’s Game 4 loss to the Cavaliers Monday.
Baynes, who had an impressive showing against the 76ers, has struggled so far this round. The low point for Baynes came midway through the fourth quarter, when Al Horford and some of his teammates had to direct him to the basket following an offensive rebound.

Shortly after the ill-fated play, Embiid took a shot at Baynes. “Man bun is in NBA just to get dunked on,” he tweeted.
Embiid is one of the shadiest tweeters in the NBA, so it’s not a surprise that he’s decided to pick on Baynes after their contentious battles with each other in the previous round. One of the few highlights for the Sixers in the series came when Embiid threw down a dunk on Baynes in Game 3.

Baynes has a chance to prove Embiid wrong Wednesday, when the Celtics take the court for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals. That should explain who’s winning this feud.
