The 76ers will have a bright future if Joel Embiid can translate his Twitter enthusiasm to the court.
The injured rookie center asked LeBron James to join the Sixers before eventually blocking the four-time NBA MVP. Embiid then reached out to television personality Kim Kardashian, apparently not knowing she's married to Kanye West.
But after no response, he jokingly threatened to block her, too.
Now, Embiid has moved on to Rihanna.
He tweeted on Tuesday night: "Hey baby holla at me!! Dinner at girogios at 930pm @rihanna????" A half-hour later, he tweeted: "SOURCES: Rihanna is considering JOEL EMBIID's offer." That tweet was retweeted more than 13,000 times.
