Two social media giants in the sports world, but only one victor.
The only problem? Both guys are declaring themselves the winner.
Joel Embiid and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba played some pick-up basketball Monday and each guy had their own highlight-reel moment from the 1-on-1 matchup. Pogba was the first to claim victory, proclaiming that the game was "over" after draining a free-throw-line jumper over the Sixers' big man.

But it wasn't long until Embiid fired back. Just two hours later, he posted his own video of an easy-looking one-handed slam against the soccer superstar.

The two are pretty good friends and were seen last week in Los Angeles as Manchester United began its United States summer tour with a stop in L.A. to play the Galaxy.

Although Embiid's social media following is pretty big, it pales in comparison to that of Pogba - Embiid has 813k and one million followers on Twitter and Instagram, respectively, whereas Pogba boasts a massive following of 3.52 million and 16.5 million on the two sites. Maybe The Process picked up some tips from one of his buddies along the way.
