With Joel Embiid sidelined for the remainder of the season, the Sixers rookie has decided to shoot his shot at romance. The big man is putting it all on the line and professing his love for singer Rihanna.
This isn’t the first time that Embiid has made his intentions clear to his celebrity crush. He allegedly reached out to Rihanna after being drafted in 2014, but she told Embiid to come back when he’s an All-Star.
Time heals all wounds, and although Embiid wasn’t named an All-Star this season, a Rookie of the Year trophy could go a long way in his hopes of landing something special with the songstress.
