Embiid excited to face Warriors, told Draymond he's 'gonna kick his ass'
"I saw Draymond this summer and I told him that I was gonna kick his ass," Embiid told reporters Friday.
"I can't wait to play against him. I love the way he talks trash, and I feel like I'm kind of the same, so it's going to be a fun battle, especially going against (Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Durant). I still haven't played against them, so I'm excited."
The talented 23-year-old center missed both games against the Dubs last year due to a season-ending knee injury. He's leading the 6-5 Sixers with 20.7 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks over nine games this season.
