Despite being a star for the 76ers, Embiid was rooting for the Green Bay Packers rather than the Eagles when the two teams met Thursday. He received thousands of negative responses from Sixers fans and knew how to respond.

He posted a photo of Mike Scott looking tough and joked he was going to send his teammate after the fans:

There’s an added layer to the joke. Scott was born in Virginia and is a Washington fan. He got into a fight with some Eagles fans during the opener between the squads, so he and Embiid share that in common: they both have upset Eagles fans this season.
