Joel Embiid appears to maybe have a Valentine this year.
So much for needing to make the All-Star team in order to date his crush. We suspected that was JoJo playing the media for a while.
Complete coverage of the Philadelphia 76ers and their rivals in the NBA from NBC Sports Philadelphia.
The message along with the photo reads:
However, shortly thereafter, Embiid crushed this bit of Valentine's day gossip, noting that it's not only fake news but also old news (which it appears to be, spelling of his name aside).
Anyway, who is this young lady who shared a photo of herself with a shirtless Joel? Her name is Olivia Pierson and she has appeared on E!'s television series WAGS.
She also recently spoke with US Weekly and shared some interesting facts about herself.
She thinks Bo Jackson is the greatest athlete of all-time so we're not sure she's watched much of JoJo's rookie season.
Her favorite color is blue which I guess helps with her Sixers fandom. She doesn't like beer, which is suspect, has a celeb crush on Leo DiCaprio, and would eat Shake Shack as her last meal. Which is okay, I guess.
She also appears to be a fashion/style blogger of sorts. Here she is teaching you how to pull off a nice top knot. Or something.
The more you know.
