Did Joel Embiid Mock Lonzo Ball's Weird Jumper?

Joel Embiid's troll game is on point.

His latest antics came at the expense of his good friend Lonzo Ball.

As you may know, Embiid isn't too fond of Ball's outspoken father, LaVar.

That's been made clear a few times, with this right here serving as a good example.

Embiid on Wednesday night took the latest shot - literally - in this budding feud.

A video posted on SLAM Magazine's Twitter account shows Embiid shooting warmup jumpers in an awkward motion and missing wildly. The form mirrors the unique and distinct shooting mechanics of Ball.

Embiid, with great savvy, put his game face on while firing away like Ball, leaving no indication that he was joking around at the moment.

But people caught it (which Embiid probably wanted). After all, it's hard to miss anything he does these days.

What no one will want to miss is when Embiid's Sixers clash with Ball's Lakers in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Nov. 15.

Consider this the spark to the fireworks.
