76ers earn first win of season, avoid tying worst-ever start
Thursday December 4th, 2014

Joel Embiid had cut back on his magnificent tweeting while the Philadelphia 76ers were in the midst of a massive 17-game losing streak to start the season, but now that they have grabbed a win he is back in a big way.

He started off with a motivational slogan:

Then he got to the good stuff, which of course means Rihanna Photoshops.

Joakim Noah's hilarious new NBA commercial

Then topped it off with some beautiful dancing before heading out on the town to celebrate.

Perhaps getting to read more Embiid tweets will be the motivation the 76ers need to win more frequently.

Embiid has yet to play in the NBA and may miss the entire season after having surgery on his foot over the summer.
