‘Too big to be crying’ – Knicks legend Charles Oakley slams Joel Embiid

Philadelphia 76ers

New York Knicks and NBA legend Charles Oakley has criticised Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid for his poor attitude on the court.

The Sixers are 3-1 down to the Knicks in the first round of the play-offs and the 30-year-old missed the morning shootaround with a migraine ahead of Tuesday night’s Game 4.

Oakley once suggested the 6ft 9in powerhouse could become the next Wilt Chamberlain, but has since questioned his own words with Embiid so far failing to ever make it out of the second round.

Speaking on SiriusXM NBA Radio’s “The Starting Lineup” show, he said: “Everybody says he’s hurt, if you’re hurt, stay home and watch it on TV like everybody else is doing.

“I don’t want hear this, ‘I’m giving it my all.’ You’re a seven-footer shooting 3s. I mean, you stand out around the 3-point line what the guards gonna do?

“So I think that, you know, they cry too much. All these guys in the league cry too much.

“He’s too big to be crying. I’m sorry I said about two years ago, he could be the next Wilt Chamberlain. I don’t know. He could be the next Dunkin Donut or somebody because he just cries.”

Embiid scored 50 points in the Game 3 defeat but has struggled in the other matches.

He is expected to draw a large crowd in New York tonight with the No2 seed on the brink of advancing.
