There seems to be high energy between both Embiid and JJ since after the game Sixers reporter Jon Johnson revealed, Embiid wants Redick with the team forever. There is a significant age difference between the two, so of course, Embiid used that opportunity to talk some friendly trash talk to his teammate.

“I wish he was 24 years old so we could be here for 10 for 15 years, but he’s old as,” Embiid said of Redick.

Redick is currently 34 years old, but it seems age is not a factor in his performance in and night out. He's been having a career high in points since he joined the Sixers while at the same time fitting in perfectly with their system.
