If Joel Embiid has taught new Philadelphia 76ers teammate Jahlil Okafor anything in the month or so since the 2015 NBA draft, it's how to use the Twitter machine to try to get a date.

Embiid had a lot of fun on Twitter last summer after being drafted by the 76ers. Mainly, he used it to tweet at women he had crushes on, such as Kim Kardashian and Rihanna. While his efforts don't appear to have worked, it looks like he may have passed his wisdom on to a rookie teammate.
