Embiid Fined $25K For Saying "Referees Fucking Suck"

Embiid Fined $25K For Saying "Referees Fucking Suck"

Philadelphia 76ers star centre Joel Embiid has found himself in some hot water after saying four words that ended up costing him a $25K fine - following the Sixers’ 112-109 loss to the Boston Celtics on Tuesday, Embiid spoke with reporters and ended his press conference by saying, "the referees fucking suck" before walking out. Mic drop 🎤

The next day, the NBA fined Embiid for "public criticism of the officiating, which included the use of inappropriate language." 

His outburst towards the refs is in response to a play late in the 4th quarter against the Celtics where the 76ers were down by two. Joel believes he was hit across the arms by Al Horford as he went up for the shot. No call was made, but the referees later admitted to missing the foul in their last two-minute report.
