Joel Embiid celebrates All-Star nod by brushing off Rihanna

Joel Embiid celebrates All-Star nod by brushing off Rihanna

It was Embiid's first All-Star selection and his rebounds on Thursday were a career best.

"Like somebody just gave one of your children a star and put it on his paper". He's gone through a lot. After all, it's not like the team is made up of Irving and a bunch of scrubs.

"Um...trust the Process", Embiid said. "It's true", was how 76ers head coach Brett Brown described the third overall pick from 2014's elevation to rarefied National Basketball Association status in quotes reported by ESPN.

Kyrie Irving's recently announced All-Star starter status appears to have Jaylen Brown's full stamp of approval. "The coaches told me, they were like, 'You don't have anything to prove".

Naturally, Embiid was asked about the prospects of getting a date with Rihanna, but he brushed off any talk of that.

"Well she rejected me back then", Embiid said. "So I gotta move onto the next one". And I'm amusing. I love pretty women. James being captain and potentially picking Embiid is a fun subplot for Sixers fans to watch, with the franchise hoping to lure the future Hall of Famer to Philly this offseason.

However, now that he's reached that goal, Embiid says he's moving on. It was his first All-Star nod, giving him the qualifications needed to date the "famous girl". "It's significant for any player", Brown said.

Raiders complied with 'Rooney Rule' when hiring Gruden
Gruden left the broadcast booth at ESPN to return to the franchise where he spent his first four seasons as a head coach. Davis hired McKenzie, who is African-American, in 2012.

Rihanna seemingly turned down Embiid.

"We knew that it was going to be the same team". Boston clearly missed his offensive firepower.

Ngannou is a large man in his own right, 6-foot-4 and weighing 260 pounds, but he looks small next to the 7-foot Embiid. But when a team's best player is out, it affects everyone. Strong. And he's big.

The good news is that tests taken on the shoulder show no structural damage.

Embiid noted how he played poorly in previous matchups against Boston and wanted to redeem himself. He is one of only six players who have those kind of numbers, including Lebron, Western Conference starter DeMarcus Cousins and Russell Westbrook (who also got snubbed, but the guards in the West are really good). No. 8 matchup if the playoffs started today.

Other media voters were more supportive of Embiid, keeping the focus on their actual production on the court. "I'm excited, but I believe in God".
