Former Sixer Comes to Joel Embiid's Defense Over Jaylen Brown's ‘poster'

All right, folks, we've settled it once and for all. 

For those of you who missed it last night, and bless your blissfully unaware selves, the Sixers lost in a big way to the Celtics in the season opener.

It was rough. It was disappointing. It was ugly. That is undisputed. 

What was disputed, however, was a play that occurred in the fourth quarter of the game, where Jaylen Brown went up for a dunk but was met by Joel Embiid. He still managed to get a shot off the glass, but the Internet erupted over whether it counted as a poster or not.

Sixers to Hire Nick Nurse as New Head Coach

Believe what you want, but it looks like one former Sixer has rushed to Embiid's defense. Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot, who was sent to the Thunder over the summer, responded to a French Twitter account's highlight of the "enormous poster."

All it took was one word with a question mark, and it looks like we have our answer on this matter. Or not, but we'll trust Embiid's former teammate on this. 

TLC stays loyal.
