Joel Embiid: still desert thirsty, still using Twitter as his personal Myspace.
The Philadelphia 76ers rookie tweeted a strange message Tuesday evening, using a picture of fellow Kansas Jayhawk Andrew Wiggins to expand on the visceral joy he feels after receiving visual surprises on his phone:
When she hits you with a nude and a video you weren't expecting considering she said she would never send one pic.twitter.com/DDXoTJV5oR— Joel SHMURDA Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) August 19, 2014
Some of Embiid's followers saw the tweet and divined a fat envelope from the league in the rookie's future:
@JoelEmbiid better watch your tweets man you know the NBA is watching your every move— derick smith ™ (@DerickSmith_) August 19, 2014
Embiid insists he isn't the habitual line-stepper some believe him to be:
I think I'm right there!! I never cross the line and will never— Joel SHMURDA Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) August 19, 2014
The rookie followed this up by reminding everyone he’s working hard and announcing his latest break from Twitter:
Me every day:: study great players... BLESSED— Joel SHMURDA Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) August 19, 2014
Going on a break✌️✌️— Joel SHMURDA Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) August 19, 2014
We’ll see you tomorrow, Joel. Remember to memo your check to commissioner Adam Silver with "the thirst." He'll get it.
