5 Reasons To Follow NBA Rookie Joel Embiid On Twitter
July 16, 2014 - 10:06 pm
Other Players Love Him
Joel’s a lovable guy. So much so, that he’s best friends with Cav’s rookie Andrew Wiggins and fellow NBA rookie Jabari Parker came to check up on him before the NBA Draft. Prior to Isaiah Austin’s heart melting moment on Draft Day, this was the sweetest NBA moment of 2014. Joel’s interactions with other players are always genuine and entertaining. In fact...
He’s Not Scared Of The King
LeBron could be an intimidating person to talk to, let alone tweet “at” publicly while he’s making the second biggest decision of his career. The fearless Embiid was well aware of the moment and like an thirsty dude leaving filthy comments on Rosa Acosta’s Instagram, he said had to put his bid in. What did the rookie really have to lose by trying to get LeBron to come play with him and the 76ers? Good location. Young talent. He gave it a shot.
Embiid Will DM Ya Girl, B
Today, Joel crossed that Kanye line. Just when the blogs thought Drake and Chris Brown would be the only things to talk about, Joel tries to get Kim Kardashian to take a trip into his DM’s. He’s not exactly a threat to Yeezy’s throne, but that’s what makes this lighthearted attempt to bag one the worlds baddest milf’s that much more amusing.
His Innocence Is Comical
Embiid’s a bright kid, but the Cameroon native still has a certain Prince Akeem quality to him. Little things that are absorbed by Americans simply through pop culture are a bit new to him, since he didn’t come to the U.S. until he was 16.
He’s Got Nothing Else To Do But Tweet
The bad news: Joel’s going to miss the whole 2014-15 NBA season due to injury. The good news: You’ll get to know him and laugh at his social commentary on hot NBA topics all season if you follow him.
