Joel Embiid Says DeAndre Ayton Will Get His Ass Kicked


I can’t wait for Deandre Ayton and Joel Embiid’s first matchup this season. This is going to be a lot of fun.

This year’s number one draft pick and the self-declared process have been trading shots ever since Ayton was drafted. A couple of weeks back, Ayton was compared to Embiid, much to the dislike of Joel himself, who warned Ayton ahead of his rookie season during an appearance on ESPN’s The Jump. If we believe Jojo, Ayton’s about to get his ass kicked.


“I was listening, I was watching the draft and I kind of felt disrespected. I don’t know, I think it was… I don’t want to say the name, but Chauncey. He’s supposed to be a GM, but he was comparing. I can see the comparison because of the potential, he’s going to be good. But when you talk about like ‘he looks like Joel Embiid,’ I play on both sides of the court. I think I’m a good offensive player, good defensive player, and I do it on both ends of the floor.

I watched him play and he’s got a lot of work to do, but he’s got a lot of potential. He’s going to be really good. I’m not upset, I’m more mad at Chauncey for not doing his research.”
