The Los Angeles Lakers have big plans this summer. The historic franchise is believed to be a contender for some major star power. LeBron James, Paul George, Chris Paul and Kawhi Leonard, among others, have each been linked to the Lakers at various points this offseason.

Joel Embiid doesn't seem to be a believer, though. He's recently taken to Instagram to troll the Lakers.

The Philadelphia 76ers' star big man posted a photo of himself and four guys (one of them being Harry Styles) with the caption "The Lakers starting 5."

Embiid then tagged Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Andre Ingram and Ivica Zubac. That's not exactly the starting five Lakers fans are hoping to see come opening night later this fall.

Embiid is constantly taking to Twitter and Instagram to clown on, well, just about everyone. The Lakers, unfortunately, are the ones at the focus of his social media antics today.

If the Lakers do get someone like LeBron or Paul George or Kawhi Leonard, we could have a pretty nice rivalry developing between Los Angeles and Philadelphia, too.
