There are a lot of athletes who are interesting or charismatic, but few who are as genuinely funny as 76ers rookie Joel Embiid. Since being taken with the third overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Cameroon-born seven-footer has invited Kim Kardashian to slide into his DMs, openly crowd-sourced girl advice on Twitter, and is now campaigning for a dinner date with Rihanna. And, apparently, it's working. Embiid is approaching 1,000,000 followers, including the highly coveted @rihanna.
Eventually, the humorless suits that run major professional sports will shut him down, but—while his in his moment—Complex News caught up with the Twitter gawd to talk about, well, the only thing that matters: Rihanna.
