And when he represented the Sixers at the National Basketball Association draft lottery on Tuesday night, he let everyone know. "I feel good about myself", Embiid said, via, when asked by "SportCenter" hosts Jemele Hill and Michael Smith to pitch himself. I feel like the process is going to keep on going.

The Joel Embiid recovery tour included a stop at ESPN's upfront event on Tuesday, where the network debuts its plans for the season and announces big changes to its programming.

Already an National Basketball Association social media superstar, despite his limited in-game chances to date, Embiid also explained why he stays authentic to himself when he posts on Twitter and Instagram. "I love being amusing on there", Embiid said.

"Social media is a way for me to connect with fans, and I love being on social media". "... I'm 7-2. I'm good-looking". Women usually love my accent because I'm from Cameroon in Africa. "And, I'm pretty intelligent too. and I'm funny".

"Why should Rihanna give you a shot?" Embiid played phenomenal in his limited minutes last season, and the team will get last year's No. 1 pick Ben Simmons back from injury. The Sixers will have two top-five picks, thanks to a foolish trade by the Sacramento Kings involving Nik Stauskas, and could have $23 million in cap space to sign free agents with.
