ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last week, the Philadelphia 76ers took Joel Embiid with the third overall pick in the NBA draft. While many experts had Embiid rated as perhaps the most talented player in the Draft, recent surgery on his foot was enough of a concern that Embiid fell No. 3. The Sixers, of course, are deep in rebuilding mode, and are willing to wait for Embiid to get healthy.
In the meantime, Embiid has been using Twitter over the last week to casually recruit free agent LeBron James to join the Sixers. Although from the looks of it, Embiid is still waiting for an answer. He might be in for a long wait …
Have a good day guys. Be safe!!! Hope he lets me know what he thinks about coming—
