While the World Series caught most people's attention in the sports world, the biggest storyline in the NBA revolved around a brawl between Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns.

The two All-Star centers found themselves in an all-out wrestling match on the hardwood. Teammates eventually intervened, as 76ers star Ben Simmons put Towns in a headlock.

Following the game, Embiid went on social media to continue his beef with Towns.

Embiid took multiple shots at Towns for his lack of playoff success in the NBA. He then crossed the line and called the former No. 1 pick a few choice words.

Most of the drama between Embiid and Towns occurred on Instagram, but the 76ers center decided to carry that drama over to Twitter.

Check it out:

It's safe to say this isn't the last time that we'll hear from either party. The reality is the NBA is going to hand out a couple of suspensions because of last night's brawl, with Embiid and Towns being the likely targets.

As for the actual game that took place on Wednesday, the Sixers defeated the Timberwolves by 22 points to improve their record to 4-0 on the season.

Philadelphia is scheduled to play Portland on Saturday. We'll see if Embiid can rejoin his teammates for that game.
