Embiid tweet on Kim Kardashian

JOEL EMBIID is a player on and off the court.

Better make that playa!

The Sixers' top draft pick put a move on Kim Kardashian yesterday by tweeting: "Hey I want you to come slide in my DMs @KimKardashian."

DMs are "direct messages" for you twits who don't use Twitter.

Embiid quickly found out Kim was married to Kanye West and posted this polite followup tweet:

"Oh I didn't know you were married sorry @KimKardashian just saw it from the fan's tweet . . . have a nice day."

Oh well, you can't score if you don't take a shot.

Embiid, who must not get the E! network with his cable package, has over 158,000 Twitter followers and enjoys reaching out on the social network.

Earlier this month, he tried to recruit LeBron James, tweeting: "@KingJames hey bro hope you're having a good day . . . Want to join us in philly?? Peace."

James eventually signed with the Cavaliers, prompting this response from Embiid:

"I guess my recruiting skills didn't work."

Going once . . .

Someone, somewhere is about to have a very cool addition to their man cave.

Last night, a desk used on ESPN's "SportsCenter" fetched $26,100 in the V Foundation auction on eBay.

The desk includes monitors and wiring. Add Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless and you've got a party.

Other items that were auctioned include a baseball glove signed by Ted Williams, a baseball signed by Babe Ruth and Roger Maris, an hourlong ride for five on the Goodyear Blimp, and the opportunity to spend a day with ESPN Radio hosts Scott Van Pelt and Ryen Russillo.

Proceeds go to The V Foundation, which was created by late North Carolina State basketball coach Jim Valvano.
