Joel Embiid has comments on Jimmy Butler, Heat struggling vs. Celtics

The Philadelphia 76ers are no longer playing basketball after being eliminated in Round 2 by former Sixers star Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat, but the Heat are struggling in the Eastern Conference Finals.

In their Game 5 matchup against the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night, the Heat couldn’t find a rhythm on offense and even Butler didn’t have a great game. Miami couldn’t respond to either Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown, and their roster of unsung players is struggling to score.

Joel Embiid, the Sixers’ big man who likes Butler, tweeted his own comments on the struggles the Heat had. He was basically stating the obvious out there.

The Heat need another star, but in the interests of Sixers fans, it won’t be Embiid. Philadelphia has no intention of moving the big guy while they go ahead with their plans to fight for their own title.
