Joel Embiid fined $25,000 for flipping off Hawks’ Kevin Huerter, cussing during postgame interview

With :17 seconds left and running out in Philadephia’s already-decided win over Atlanta Monday, Kevin Huerter came up on Joel Embiid and stole the ball, giving Atlanta another shot.

A frustrated Embiid flipped off Huerter.

After the win, Embiid was still steemed and cussed in a televised postgame interview.

That’s going to cost Embiid a $25,000 fine, the league announced Wednesday.

That’s the price for Embiid being a “good a**h*** and getting back to being his vintage self.
