Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid is having a great season with the team, and now he wants his crush.

While averaging 19.2 points, and 7.3 rebounds per game he has a chance to be an All Star. That is usually enough of an incentive to add to a player’s legacy. For Embiid, that’s not quite it though. He wants a chance at his celebrity crush.

Two years ago, he was drafted as the 3rd overall pick. After that he tried to shoot his shot to what many people believe to be Rihanna. She told him to become an “all-star first.” Now he is doing everything he can do make that happen.

Fans will account for 50{52c2b9fb7f6aa0736ded2304e74d79e31e70c85fb70a6b545c464e9a6c8f3457} of the vote this year with players and media making up the other 25{52c2b9fb7f6aa0736ded2304e74d79e31e70c85fb70a6b545c464e9a6c8f3457} each.

When asked if he’d be happy to get the ‘Rookie Of The Year’ award he reportedly said the following.

“Rookie of the year would be great, but I don’t think it’s going to help me get to my crush. Hopefully, the All-Star [Game] I’ll get to do that.”

He’s gone so far as to even fake a Donald Trump tweet!

Not mad at the try!
