Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid was recently spotted at a public park playing pickup basketball, dunking on non-NBA sized players.

Embiid, 24, was seen playing one-on-one against someone who was reportedly talking trash to the former No. 3 overall pick and Eastern Conference All-Star.

While the park goer did a fine job staying in front of him while he showed various dribble moves, the 7-footer eventually drove to the basket and then finished at the rim with a powerful dunk (much to the delight of those watching nearby).

Embiid is often spotted out in public in Philadelphia, but it's certainly unusual (and awesome) to see him posterizing strangers.
