The Philadelphia 76ers are contenders for this year’s championship, but they participated in a game where the team has already played dirty clothes in public.
Joel Embiid (Joel Embiid) and Shake Milton (Shake Milton) had a heated exchange during the break of their first game against the Pacers.
When the team was overtime, Joel Embiid and Shake Milton seemed to be communicating.

Quarrels between teammates are nothing new, but in the Philadelphia team’s current lineup, time has been counting after they lost the seventh game against the Raptors in the second round last year.
Jimmy Butler was replaced by Al Horford and Josh Richardson this season, but the team’s performance is not the same as last year’s lineup.
Embiid dominates when healthy, and Milton helps the team score.
If the 76ers are going to compete for the title in the East, they need their players on the same page.
Orlando’s bubble environment will definitely put some pressure on players who are temporarily unable to contact the outside world (including temporary family members).
The Sixers have plenty of time to solve any problems in their game or team chemistry, but public debate on the court may not be the way they want to make their bubble debut.
