LaVar ball strikes more than a few people's nerve. Joel Embiid was no exception. Embiid took to social media to share his thoughts on LaVar.

Well, he used very vulgar language in a video he posted about LaVar, which the NBA didn't like. They fined Embiid $10,000 and that should have been the end of it.

Instead, however, the city of Philadelphia rallied behind the star by starting a GoFundMe named "Pay JoJo's Fine" to pay his fine. While Embiid shouldn't have any difficulty paying the fine with his $6 million salary, it didn't stop the fans from trying to make their voices heard.

Basically, 230 people have raised 2,657 dollars to say with one loud voice "F--- LaVar Ball!" While it's a completely petty and unnecessary fundraiser, it sure is fun to see all of Philly unite under it's favorite star.
