Joel Embiid wasn't the only one throwing shade at the Phoenix Suns on Thursday evening.
The Philadelphia 76ers' official Twitter account got in on the action after the Suns tossed some shade in their direction.
It all started with a tweet while Mikal Bridges was still a member of the 76ers' squad. @Sixers posted some highlights of Bridges from his Villanova days. Harmless enough.
Then Bridges got traded to the Suns for Zhaire Smith and an unprotected first round pick in 2021. It appears as if the original highlights tweet was deleted but the @Suns had receipts.
That's when the @Suns tossed a jab.
The Sixers didn't take it lying down.
Who you got in the battle of the hoops nerds behind the team Twitter accounts?
Just remember: don’t ever take sides with anyone against the family again. Ever.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).
Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).
And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.
The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.
Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?
So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.
Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.

More on the Eagles
If the stress of the Eagles season is keeping you up at night, you’re not the only one. One little fella's parents caught him up wayyy past bedtime in the name of the Eagles.
Listen closely as Jameson Kane sings the Eagles fight song through the baby monitor on the video shared on social media by his parents, Britney and Jimmy, on Friday.
It will melt your heart.
If this doesn’t lift your spirits after a tough few weeks as an Eagles fan, then we don’t know what will.
It turns out, Jameson’s parents might prefer to use the fight song as a lullaby instead of your classic Hush Little Baby. And we love them for it.
Through highs and lows, it looks like this little kiddo is being raised right.
