08-09-2014, 11:28 AM
After playing 28 games and averaging 11.2 points and 8.1 rebounds as a freshman at Kansas, Embiid took his talents to the Twitter-sphere. He already has asked Kim Kardashian to "slide in his direct messages," and has been avidly courting singer Rihanna, once asking her on a date to Giorgios. But Embiid claimed he was just "enjoying himself" in the best way he knew how while recovering from his injury.

"I'm just having fun, I'm just messing around," Embiid said with a chuckle. "I'm a 20-year-old kid and I just figured that's a way to have fun safely and I can do anything . . . you have to worry about your image. Everyone looks up to you and people like it when I'm funny on Twitter. During the season, that's probably not a good idea."
