The Sixers big man posted a photo on Instagram with a caption: “You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.”
“I know a place where villains are welcome,” Butler commented on the post while Embiid agreed to it.
Embiid and Butler were together in Philadelphia last season. But after only one season with the Sixers, Butler decided to move out. The reason for it being not getting a max extension that he wanted.
After he left for Miami, the 76er have had an up and down 2019/20 season. Embiid has come into some criticism this season. His Instagram post leads to some speculation as to whether he directed it towards the Phillies franchise. And Butler’s response seems to be an invitation for Embiid to join Miami Heat.
