Joel Embiid trolls Hassan Whiteside with ‘BBQ Chicken’ Instagram post location

The worst best kept secret in the NBA is Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid — not just because of his stellar play on the court, but, how he is the king of NBA social media.

A simple internet search will provide you with all of the examples you need, and on Monday night, he continued his reign as the lord of trolling by posting the following message on Instagram:


Another Win!!!!! Gotta keep it going….. #TrustTheProcess

At first glance, there’s nothing to see. However, if you look at the location of Embiid’s post, you can see he changed it to ‘BBQ Chicken’ — Shaquille O’Neal’s famous saying for any time a big man roasts an opposing big man in the post.

Embiid knows exactly what he’s doing here, poking fun at Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside after a game that the 76ers won and the Heat did not. But what makes this even better is that Whiteside posted 32 points and 13 rebounds — so who really made BBQ chicken out of whom?

That appears to not matter to Embiid, as the king of NBA Twitter has claimed another victim.
