Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green is at a loss for words after witnessing how John Collins took the soul out of Joel Embiid in Game 6 of the Philadelphia 76ers-Atlanta Hawks series.
Midway through the third quarter, Trae Young found Collins with an open lane to the rim. Sure enough, the Hawks guard didn’t waste the opportunity and lobbed the ball to his teammate, who made his best Michael Jordan impersonation and took flight for the slam.
Unfortunately for Embiid, he was caught in the middle of it when he tried to stop the alley-oop. Of course, the Sixers center failed and Collins made sure he won’t forget it anytime soon.

After witnessing such gravity-defying and disrespectful dunk, Green could only blurt out three words. The Warriors forward was so hyped that he couldn’t avoid using some inappropriate NSFW words.
Ohhhhhhh shiiitttt John!!!

Sure enough, we can’t blame Draymond Green for his reaction. After all, it was a really filthy dunk that should be a lock on the top highlights of the 2021 playoffs.
Moreover, like the Warriors defender, Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant could only tweet a mind-blown emoji after seeing the massive poster dunk on the MVP finalist.

John Collins will certainly be hyped to see these reactions from the Warriors and Grizzlies stars, as well as the rest of the Hawks fan base. He has been pivotal for Atlanta in the series, and his performance so far definitely deserves some recognition.
As for Joel Embiid, he probably needs to move on quickly and avoid Twitter for some time. Besides, he might not want to see the tweets from the Warriors small-ball big man and the rest of the NBA.
