There is absolutely zero doubt Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid is one of the best Twitter follows in the NBA—because he's not afraid to have a little fun. 

On Saturday night, Embiid's former team, the Kansas Jayhawks, hosted the Kentucky Wildcats as part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge. Although the Wildcats gave the Jayhawks a tough test, foul trouble and an inability to contain Kansas star Wayne Selden Jr. cost them.

The Jayhawks pulled out a 90-84 overtime victory, much to the delight of Embiid. That result led the injured 76er to put his Twitter fingers to work:

No chill.

Of course, some fans will point out if what Embiid tweeted is true, then that doesn't say much about Kansas because the Jayhawks needed overtime to beat Kentucky at home. But if any fan calls him out like that, all Embiid has to say is, "Scoreboard, fam."

Embiid just better hope this tweet doesn't come back to bite him come tournament time.
