We could use a good rivalry in the NBA. Besides the annual Cavs/Warriors Finals meeting.

Friday night the Heat and Sixers had a preseason game, and early on Joel Embiid was fouled in the post by Hassan Whiteside, and after that Embiid waved at the Heat bench and told them to get Whiteside out because “he can’t guard me.”

After the game, the two had a Twitter beef. It all started when someone told Embiid it was funny he said he can’t be guarded when he went 1-of-7 from the floor.

But this was the best line of all, a little dig at Kevin Durant.

Now I can’t wait for a Sixers vs. Heat regular season matchup. Let’s go.
