Joel Embiid's Hilarious Reply to Viral Video of 6-10, 12-year-old Basketball Player

If you have the Internet, you have probably seen this video of 6-foot-10, 12-year-old basketball phenom Olivier Rioux yesterday. What you might not have seen are these hilarious reactions by Joel Embiid and Steph Curry.

For those of you who somehow missed the video, here it is.

Joel Embiid, your thoughts?

I can't imagine the joy Embiid had watching this video. As someone who has, as recently as this month, dribbled a basketball off someone's face, swatted young fans shots during promotional events and joked about dunking on 5-2 trainers, Embiid had to have enjoyed this video more than anyone. He is also one of the best trash-talkers in the game, so his comment about Rioux staring down and trash-talking his opponents is pure gold.

Steph Curry also had his say, which is what we were all thinking.

Not for nothing, Rioux shows off a few good post moves in the video and some range as well. Just imagine how much fun it must be to be allowed to play as hard as you can against opponents that you're able to completely dominate. Obviously, things will change for the youngster when he graduates to taller rims and taller opponents, but for now, this video is awesome and I hope we haven't seen the last of this Canadian wonderkid.
