LaVar Ball continued his verbal tussle with Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid, this time questioning the big man’s intelligence. Recently, TMZ Sports asked LaVar about Embiid’s Intagram live video where he shouted "F--k LaVar Ball," the father of Los Angeles Lakers No. 2 pick Lonzo Ball responded that Embiid’s “vocabulary is limited” and “you gotta use cuss words when you don't have no intellect."

LaVar stepped up his attack on Embiid, saying “he's not intelligent at all." The Ball patriarch said Embiid should not be worried about him but should worry about playing. In his rookie year, Embiid was limited to just 31 games due to injury.

The war of words between LaVar and Embiid started when the center responded to a tweet by teammate Ben Simmons, who posted on his Twitter account “Crazy Pills," in obvious reference to LaVar. Embiid replied to Simmons’ tweet, saying: “Please dunk on him so hard that his daddy runs on the court to save him” -- referring to the Lakers’ No. 2 overall pick.

LaVar responded in radio interview

The outspoken LaVar did not let the tweets go unanswered, giving Simmons, Embiid, and even top overall pick Markelle Fultz a piece of his mind in an interview with 97.5 The Fanatic. During the interview, LaVar highlighted the Sixers' losing record and mentioned the injuries that derailed the beginning of Embiid and Simmons’ NBA careers. LaVar said the two “don’t even stay on the court long enough” so they spend time on Twitter and “make some stuff." LaVar also advised Simmons and Embiid to spend time in the gym and work on their game instead of wasting their time on Twitter.

LaVar hits collegiate career of Simmons, Fultz

LaVar did not stop there as he also questioned the collegiate careers of Simmons and Fultz. LaVar said the two only made themselves better and not their respective schools. Even with Simmons averaging 19.2 points, 11.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 2.0 steals per game, LSU finished with a disappointing 19-14 record. LaVar also mentioned Fultz, who led Washington to a 9-22 mark despite tallying 23.2 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 5.9 assists.

LaVar also boasted about his son’s ability to turn around a program when he led UCLA to a 31-5 record last year after a disastrous 15-17 mark a year before. During his one year with the Bruins, Lonzo averaged 14.6 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 7.6 assists per outing as he steered UCLA to a spot in the Sweet 16.
