Watch: Tatum explains why he told Embiid 'you got lucky' in Game 3

Can an opposing player be both a rival and a friend?

That's certainly a question worth asking, but if Jayson Tatum had actually connected on the dunk he missed against buddy Joel Embiid in Game Three of the Eastern Conference Finals, we might not be asking that question anyway.
