Dario Saric and Joel Embiid sure seem to be enjoying their first experience at NBA All-Star weekend down in New Orleans.
Saric is scheduled to participate in the Rising Star Challenge this evening while Embiid will be sidelined due to his various injuries. But they have both done their share of media rounds and seem to be enjoying themselves.
JoJo even has his own Embeads!

That's how you party.
Embiid sat down with Lang Whitaker and Sekou Smith and talked about his love of Twitter (which he is a total boss at btw).
"I like reading what people write about me especially when they write bad stuff about me or about my game. When they say that I can't do this, I want to go out on the court the next game and do it. I want to be a complete player. I want to end up being a point guard later in my career."
As for his off-the-court exploits?
"I'm a fun guy and I want to have fun," Embiid said.
Embiid also talked to Rick Fox and was asked about his fun weekend plans.
"I kind of got in trouble for taking my shirt off at the Meek Mill concert, so we'll see," Embiid said.
Embiid also sat down with NBA legend Kevin Durant and talked about whether he felt he got snubbed for the All-Star game.
"I think I was snubbed," Embiid said. "I think I got a lot of years in this League so I think I'm going to have a chance to make it."
As for Dario? A fun fact about him that we learned is that he likes to order his drinks at Starbucks under the name "Marcus."
Embiid also has some fun with Dario and interupts him mid-interview to ask him if he can speak English. Oh, guys.
