Rihanna following Embiid on Twitter

By Jeff Case

Injured Philadelphia 76ers rookie center Joel Embiid has been busy on Twitter since the Draft, trying to first get LeBron James to sign with Philly, then trying to get the attention of Kim Kardashian and, lately, has been trying to get Rihanna‘s attention, too.

Well, at least his efforts with his latest Twitter target appears to have paid off as the pop star is apparently doing what LeBron and Kim K. wouldn’t do: follow him back on Twitter.

 

Joel Embiid moves on to Rihanna

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — When we last checked in with rookie Sixers center Joel Embiid, he was once again showing his social media prowess by making an (ultimately failed) attempt at meeting Kim Kardashian on Twitter. This following an attempt to recruit LeBron James to join the Sixers.

That didn’t work out so well, but it hasn’t slowed Embiid’s passion for public displays of his affection, as he has apparently decided to re-focus his social media attention on superstar singer Rihanna

Rihanna has yet to respond, at least via Twitter.

Embiid denied once again on Twitter

By Joe Boozell

Joel Embiid is unable to join the rest of his 2014 Draft class on the court in Summer League due to a foot injury, but that hasn’t stopped the talented big man from making a name for himself this offseason.

Embiid recently made an attempt — an unsuccessful one, granted — to woo LeBron James in joining his Philadelphia 76ers. It was far more humorous than it was convincing.

Well, Embiid is back with a vengenace. But this time, he’s not recruiting free agents to join the 76ers. Nope, he’s recruiting actress/model extraordinaire Kim Kardashian to hit up his Twitter DM (direct message) line.

When informed by numerous followers that Kardashian is married to Kanye West, poor Embiid did what any stand up guy would do: some serious backtracking.

Joel, I think I speak for everyone when I say this: Please keep tweeting.

 

 

 

 

Joel Embiid ends hilarious Twitter recruitment of LeBron James

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Before the July 4th holiday, we checked in with Sixers rookie Joel Embiid, who was using Twitter to have a little fun with the free agency frenzy surrounding LeBron James.

Embiid was using Twitter to jokingly attempt to get LeBron James to sign with the Philadelphia 76ers. But after a few days of trying to get James’ attention via Twitter, with apparently no response, Embiid announced that he’s ended his pursuit. Good job, good effort, rook. Sure was fun while it lasted…

Joel Embiid is recruiting LeBron James on Twitter

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 …
