You just handed your lunch money over before they even asked, didn’t you.


You are like my nemesis poster, everything I believe in you believe the opposite. Personally, I respect Embiid far more after him crying, I didnt expect him being so invested, made him more likeable and sympathetic.

And do bullies in American schools really take other children lunch money? I have seen this in TV shows all the time, and its just sound insane to me, thats no longer just bullying, thats a straight up crime.

Gasol exhibited excellent maturity. Embiid didn't. I would like one day to see Embiid do the same for a young player one day.

He showboated in front of the entire team! Everyone saw it. And if you think he wasn't chirping, you’re mistaken. So he didn’t showboat? He should do that! Wtf! Then suck up the criticism when it comes... the hypocrisy of it all. Smh. And Gasol is all class, in spite of it, something Embiid could stand to learn from.

Project? Which one of us has a bias here. You respond to every post that criticizes him and post about every scrap said about him. Is this a **** joke? Who do you think believes you here because you don’t even believe you.

"Embiid didn't" based on absolutely nothing :lol: Just like all of the emotionally-charged claims you're making. You're either a victim of the echo chamber or a perpetrator of it.

I have made the case, and I think almost everybody sees it. Your denials are strange to me. Embiid has shown a pattern of immaturity and disrespect. This has established his NBA character.

-Twitter trolling
-Press conference giggling over injured players (whether he laughed about the injury, or his childish teammate's reaction, either still shows a lack of maturity on Embiid's part).
-On court showboating
-On court crying after all of the above

“I didn’t notice. I just saw them shake their bodies. Good for them. Like I said -- I don’t care if it offends anybody. It’s all about having fun. I don’t care. I’m going to do that because I’m going to dominate.”
https://www.philly.com/sixers/drake-joel-embiid-sixers-76ers-raptors-nba-playoffs-airplane-taunt-20190508.html

“I had a nice little spiel for Joel Embiid. But nah after his reactions after last night’s game I kinda felt bad for the guy. You could tell he’s a kid, you know he’s really upset, but by any means, nobody on the team liked the antics or anything that he was doing, and you know sometimes it’s like win gracefully and lose gracefully, but he’s an emotional player, and you could tell he’s still a very young kid. It’s a learning lesson. He’ll learn from it and he’ll build from it”
https://www.reddit.com/r/nba/comments/boefrz/danny_green_of_the_raptors_comments_on_joel/





Why do you say my claim isn't based on anything? Everybody sees this pattern, and how it played out in this series in particular. And you continue to make claims about me and my emotional state, rather than engage the case I've layed out. That is almost as ironic as the tragic change of winds on Embiid in this series.

What’s a sad reality? That accountability is foreign to you, where as entitlement certainly isn’t? I bet embiid at least would admit he had it coming, but you can’t.

honestly, most normal people outside of internet boards will see you laughing at Embiid crying and think way worse of you than they do of him (most people will have a lot of empathy/sympathy for him).

Everybody cries- would you like it if next time you're crying, someone filmed it and then a bunch of internet nerds started laughing at you because they're devoid of basic empathy?


Why do you think all crying is the same?

If a passionate player cries in a tragic defeat, that is nothing to laugh at. I respect it. If someone cries after being bullied, I have great sympathy. But if a childish, showboating, disrespectful player cries in his defeat, well, that's a different story. There is good comedy in an incredibly talented grown man act like a child on social media and on the court, and then acting childish in his defeat, too. Most normal people are sensitive to this difference. So you are right that laughing at crying by itself is usually a bad thing, and most normal people see that. But you are wrong about this case. A laugh at a temper tantrum or a comeuppance is totally appropriate, and most normal people can see the difference.

It also seems like the moral disgust you are feeling applies to people we have relationships with. Fellow students, coworkers, friends. I think that's different than laughing at a story. None of us are acquainted with Joel Embiid the person. Instead, we are acquanted with Joel Embiid the basketball personality in an entertainment league. He's more like a character in a story than the fellow student getting bullied. This character just underwent the change in the drama that leads to a later resolution.

https://www.britannica.com/art/peripeteia
"Peripeteia, (Greek: “reversal”) the turning point in a drama after which the plot moves steadily to its denouement. It is discussed by Aristotle in the Poetics as the shift of the tragic protagonist’s fortune from good to bad, which is essential to the plot of a tragedy. It is often an ironic twist, as in Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex when a messenger brings Oedipus news about his parents that he thinks will cheer him, but the news instead slowly brings about the awful recognition that leads to Oedipus’s catastrophe."

It will be a comedy is he reforms, a tragedy if he doesn't. All good drama, but I'm rooting for the happy ending.

He is certainly a good character in a storyline. This story is a funny one at his expense. But if he reformed going forward, grew up and changed his ways, he could become a very interesting hero in a story instead of a clown. But we'll see. If he wants to stay on the childish villain side, it does make for a good story. But I like to root for characters to mature and develop.

Not all crying is the same. Some deserves sympathy, some deserves a laugh. I think maturity requires seeing that difference.

Genuine crying is genuine crying. But do you believe that all genuine crying deserves sympathy?

If a grown person genuinely cries because they can't get free ice cream sprinkles today, that is comedy. If a grown person genuinely cries over the loss of an innocent life, that is tragedy.

Surely you don't think that all genuine crying deserves sympathy, no matter the cause. And surely you see the context of how Joel Embiid comported himself through this series, and through his NBA career so far, and see the ironic twist in game 7. It could be a very healthy thing for him. I hope it is.

Well there ya have it folks. This is why Embiid deserves to be laughed at and ridiculed for being a child. I'm recusing myself from this conversation because anyone juvenile enough to adopt this mentality isn't self-aware enough to realize how petty and ridiculous it is.

I outlined the case for you again, even though I think everybody takes it as obvious.

On this particular point of the case, saying that you don't care if your showboating is offensive, that all you care about is fun, and that you are going to showboat because you are going to dominate.... well, by Embiid's own rules, I think he'd be laughing at a lot of people crying. He shouldn't laugh at those who deserve sympathy, but he doesn't care if it offends anyone, and if it's fun to do, he's going to laugh. He doesn't care.

Yes, I think that is part of a pattern of childish behavior. Cheers.
