The NBA announced Saturday it has fined Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid for using inappropriate language on social media. The league did not specify for which post it fined Embiid, but the 23-year-old Cameroonian big man recently delivered a three-word, expletive-laced statement at LaVar Ball, the father to Lakers’ draft pick Lonzo Ball, during a livestream from his Instagram account.
