It’s been two months since Jayson Tatum’s Celtics eliminated Joel Embiid and the Sixers in a physical Eastern Conference semis. While the 20-year-old Tatum advanced to take on LeBron in the Conference Finals, Embiid was in the Bahamas balling on Bill from Accounting and demoralizing random dudes on the courts of South Philly.

Now that the offseason is here, the two young studs are hungry to live up to the limitless potential bestowed upon them. Drew Hanlen, NBA Strategic Skills Coach and CEO of Pure Sweat, has a YouTube series called Unseen Hours that takes fans behind the scenes of the offseason training process.

In the latest episode, Embiid, Tatum, and sixth overall pick Mo Bamba take turns going one-on-one, displaying jaw-dropping skills, and shit talking–Embiid manages to compare himself to Jordan, call himself the ‘walking GOAT’ and telling both Tatum and Bamba they are incapable of stopping him.

This shot defies physics.

If you’re taking a long dump today, check out the entire 10-minute video. Trail Blazers center Meyers Leonard, Celtics forward Semi Ojeyele, and Markelle Fultz are featured working out.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
