Fans Flood Pop Star's Social Media to Get Embiid a Date

Your move, Rihanna.

While the narrative this season surrounding Joel Embiid's All-Star selection has been much less focused on his mystery crush (allegedly Rihanna) and more about his play on the court, Sixers fans have not forgotten.

If you needed a reminder, here's a screenshot of a Tweet Joel Embiid sent last year.

Well, it was announced Thursday that Embiid was selected to his first NBA All-Star Game, as a starter no less, and fans are flooding the celeb's social media feeds with mentions of the center.

Here's a look at the latest post on her Instagram account.
