The Atlanta Hawks troll Philadelphia 76ers after Game 7


Joel Embiid has been known for his fair share of trolling throughout the years. However, after the Philadelphia 76ers were bounced out of the playoffs in a 103-96 loss, the Atlanta Hawks social media page decided to do some trolling of its own Sunday.

For the past eight years, “Trust the Process” has become a common chant for Philly fans that refers to former general manager Sam Hinkie’s plan to rebuild the team before the 2013-14 season. The mantra’s earliest use is from an interview with former 76ers guard Tony Wroten.

After the win, the Hawks used a euphoric picture of Trae Young to fire back with some “processing” of their own.

It didn’t stop there though, the jokes continued with this edit of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” intro.

It wasn’t just the Hawks’ Twitter page but John Collins poked fun at the 76ers in his postgame news conference by sporting a shirt with a photo of his Game 6 posterization, and headlock, on Embiid.

Below is another look at Young’s showmanship, which became a source of attention when he took a bow in front of Madison Square Garden’s crowd after Atlanta’s Game 5 victory against the New York Knicks.

Trae Young officially says goodbye to Knicks fans after hitting the logo 3-pointer in the final minute in Game 5.

Ahead of the matchup, history appeared to be on Philly’s side as it boasted a 5-1 record in Game 7s at home compared to Atlanta’s 0-9 record in Game 7s on the road.

Despite that, the Hawks stamped their ticket to the Eastern Conference finals for the first time in six years where they’ll meet Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks.
