NBA legends Charles Barkley and Shaq rip 76ers star Joel Embiid for kicking Nets player

Apr 21, 2023

The Philadelphia 76ers have a 3-0 lead over the Nets in the first round of the NBA's Eastern Conference playoff series. But much of the conversation following the Sixers' 102-97 victory in Game 3 has revolved around star Joel Embiid.

Following a dunk by Brooklyn Nets center Nic Claxton early in the first quarter, Embiid fell to the court. As Claxton stepped over him, Embiid then lashed out with a retaliatory kick.

After a video review, the referees determined that Embiid committed a flagrant foul 1. A flagrant foul 2 would have resulted in an ejection.
