Joel Embiid hilariously puts the Twitter moves on Rihanna

Joel EmbiidJoel Embiid won’t play enough next season to make a run at NBA Rookie of the Year, but the guy already has NBA Twitter MVP locked down.

The Philadelphia 76ers draft pick made some noise earlier this month by trying to recruit free agent LeBron James to Philly. Then a few weeks ago he turned his attention to recruiting Kim Kardashian, though that was for more personal reasons.

After having no luck with Kim, Embiid moved on to Rihanna. He sent these tweets Tuesday:

How awesome is it that he set dinner plans for them?

Embiid then hilariously turned from publicly asking out Rihanna to being a reporter doing a story on his story.

Later in the night, Embiid held to his date:

Embiid is seriously my favorite athlete follow on Twitter now. The guy is just oozing with personality, charm and humor. Don’t change, Joel-Hans, do not change.

Oh, and cherchez la femme.
