Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers are watching the Eastern Conference Final from the comforts of their own homes, after being bounced by the Celtics. No matter though, because Embiid felt it necessary to lightly roast Boston role player Aron Baynes during a comical moment of Game 4 between the Celtics and the Cavaliers.
Midway through the fourth quarter, with the Celtics trying to mount a mini-comeback while down by eight points, a loose ball scramble ended with the rock in the hands of Aron Baynes. His back was to the basket, and he didn’t seem to realize there was no one behind him defending the rim. He appeared to look for a kick-out pass, before finally taking a dribble and a drop step on his way to being fouled by Kyle Korver.

Minutes later, Embiid’s Twitter feed lit up with this gem.

Poor Man Bun.
Critics will be quick to point out that at least Baynes is still playing, while Embiid’s season is over. Doesn’t really matter though, since Embiid is pretty hilarious on social media and is one of the NBA’s “must follow” personalities.
Embiid also knows a little something about dunking on “Man Bun”:
Ben Simmons dishes & Joel Embiid DELIVERS! ???
