76ers' Joel Embiid Makes His Case for Shot at Rihanna

76ers' Joel Embiid Makes His Case for Shot at Rihanna

Joel Embiid said during an interview from the NBA Draft lottery Tuesday that he expects to return to the court in two or three weeks.

"We're gearing up at the right time", Embiid said after the draft lottery, per the Philadelphia Inquirer's Mike Sielski. "The process is not just about getting over what we've been going through for the past three or four years". The Sixers also enjoyed a standout rookie season from Dario Saric, who came over from Croatia to average 13 points and six rebounds per game - numbers that went up after Embiid got hurt and starting forward Ersan Ilyasova got traded.

Last season, the 76ers finished the year with the fourth-worst record in the entire National Basketball Association, thanks to a mark of 28-54. While that marked their most wins since 2012-13, it was also 23 wins fewer than the regular-season total posted by the Cavaliers, who are now playing in the Eastern Conference finals.




Embiid first crossed paths with Rihanna some time ago.

"When I say we are going to be ready to win when the Cavs are going down, that doesn't mean, like, five years", Embiid added.

"I'm doing great", the 23-year-old big man told Michael Smith and Jemele Hill. 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.
