Embiid called Wilt Chamberlain the GOAT.
While some love to have the debate over who is the best basketball player of all time, most will dismiss the argument and jump straight to Michael Jordan. Considering Jordan's resume and the way he dominated the game, it's no surprise that he is held in such high esteem. Well, during a recent appearance on a podcast with The Ringer, Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid decided to unleash his inner contrarian and make the claim that Wilt Chamberlain is the goat.
"To me, you got Wilt Chamberlain. He’s got all the records, and no one is ever gonna beat them. I don’t see anyone ever getting 100 points in a game. That’s it, he’s the G.O.A.T," Embiid said.
One of Jordan's teammates, the always interesting Dennis Rodman, was asked by TMZ Sports about Embiid's take and let's just say he was less than amused.
"Joel Embiid, you're doing a great job for your little island or country where you're from," Rodman quipped. "Shut the f**k up, go do your goddamn job and do Philly proud. That's the 1 thing they need, a championship."
