Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid may be out for the season with injury, but he is certainly continuing to make an impact through social media.
This past summer, the young prospect joined the list of teams and players trying to recruit LeBron James as speculation continued to build that he would leave the Miami Heat.
While he eventually opted to re-join the Cleveland Cavaliers, Embiid didn’t take the news well and went on to block James on Twitter and joked about how his recruiting skills needed work.
The No.3 overall pick in the 2014 Draft has returned to the James topic this week after the 76ers defeated the Cavaliers 95-92 for their first home win of the season. Granted, Cleveland were without James and point guard Kyrie Irving who were missing through injury.
Nevertheless, that wasn’t going to stop Embiid from having a jovial dig at his rival despite the fact that the Sixers are 5-28 for the season while Cleveland are still 19-16 and set to make the playoffs.
While we await his debut in the NBA, Embiid is certainly keeping us entertained during his spell on the sidelines…
I told him to sign with us back in the summer and he didn't smh
