Joel Embiid Has Two Words For Kevin Durant, Goes Viral With DX Crotch Chop Video

Joel Embiid breaks it down.

The Philadelphia 76ers played the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night, and Nets star Kevin Durant wasn’t a fan of Sixers forward Joel Embiid’s D-Generation X-style celebration during the game. Embiid did a crotch chop after making a layup during the third quarter, and Durant called it a “trash celebration” on Twitter after the game.

Joel Embiid quickly responded, sharing a remixed video of himself doing the crotch chop to the DX theme.

Embiid apparently sent the video moments before his post-game press conference, where he was laughing about the post. The 76ers won the game 137-133 in front of a hometown crowd at the Wells Fargo Center.

Joel Embiid is a noted WWE fan and he has made the infamous gesture his own, as well as having performed Triple H’s ring entrance too. The association gained enough attention that Triple H went to a 76ers playoff game in 2021 to lead Embiid to the court and participate in the pre-game “ring the bell.” celebration.
