76ers rookie Joel Embiid is wooing Rihanna over Twitter

Wednesday July 23rd, 2014

Joel Embiid is running away with the "NBA's Best Tweeter" title, and he is not looking back.

After using the social media platform to try and get LeBron James to join him on the Philadelphia 76ers, Embiid made a brief run at Kim Kardashian, but has now set his sights on Rihanna, with equally hilarious results.

After making his initial offer, Embiid then began to live tweet his preparation for the date that was definitely not going to happen.

Embiid closed the night out by quoting some of his favorite Rihanna song, before giving some quick updates on the meetup.

Sounds like it went pretty well for an imaginary date.
