Just recently, Joel Embiid was named a starter for the Eastern Conference in the NBA All-Star Game that will take place in Los Angeles.
At 23 he is living one of the best moments of his career. In the beginning (2014), he tried to get a date with singer Rihanna but she, a basketball fan, shut him down in brutal fashion. “Come back when you’re an All-Star,” she said.
Now that Embiid is an All-Star, he was interviewed by a journalist after a game on Thursday night, if he would try again with the 29-year-old artiste, this was his moment. Embiid said that he was past his former crush.
He said: “She denied me back then; there’s no reason to go back to her,” Embiid said. “So I gotta move on to the next one. There’s a lot of pretty women out there, and I’m beautiful, so I gotta move on to the next one.”
