Joel Embiid and DeMarcus Cousins have always been two of the biggest players and personalities in the league since they arrived.

Back when Cousins was on the Kings (which seems like a lifetime ago) he and Embiid were battling down in the post, then a travel was called on Embiid. As they jogged back up the court, they got into an unusual back and forth.

This interaction was certainly not one most would consider conventional or common, but those words have never really been used to describe either of these players, both from a basketball ability and personality standpoint.

And when these two surely match up up again in the future, don't be surprised if you see more hilarious interactions between the two.
