John Collins wears Joel Embiid poster dunk shirt

Hawks’ Collins giants Embiid with rude t-shirt initially appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

John Collins tossed down a doubtful dunk on Joel Embiid in Video Game 6, a slam that would’ve been an outstanding poster had he not put Embiid’s head in the criminal of his arm, a clear offending nasty.

The referees in Atlanta chose to call a nasty on Embiid rather, nevertheless, permitting Collins to leave scot totally free and delight in a dunk he thinks was tidy – and nasty.

Collins is feeling himself and the dunk a lot that, after the Hawks got rid of the Sixers in Video Game 7, Atlanta’s young star used a Tee shirts emblazoned with an image of himself soaking on Embiid to his post-game interview:


It’s an elite-level giant relocation, and to be sincere we had actually all enjoy it if Embiid were the one doing it… however I need to state Collins is most likely going to pertain to regret this one. 

That’s the type of giant relocation you pull after you win the NBA Finals, not the 2nd round. I can’t think of the Hawks are going to take the Bucks past 6 video games in the Eastern Conference Finals. 

Likewise, you soaked on a man (once again, most likely fouled a man) who was playing the whole series on a torn meniscus. You can be pleased with yourself, however it’s type of unusual to get that amped. Collins and Embiid were going back and forth a lot in Video game 6, so Collins obviously felt the requirement to head out and get this t-shirt made. More power to him, I think?

Collins had a strong series and the Hawks played much better basketball. We’ll see what occurs next round… and likewise next season.
