"I thank all the fans and all the people that support me".

The Cameroon native is averaging 23.8 points, 10.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.9 blocks per game this season.

BOSTON (AP) - Joel Embiid is headed to the NBA All-Star game for the first time, and he celebrated with another impressive performance. Following last night's post-game interview, fans of "The Process" bombarded Rihanna's IG with comments about Embiid.

While it'd be easy to say Embiid got the last laugh, turns out Rihanna is actually rumoured to be dating Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel.

The Eastern Conference and Western Conference starters for the 67th NBA All-Star Game were revealed tonight on TNT. The reserves will be announced Tuesday and the rosters selected by James and Curry will be unveiled next Thursday.

And they said that the United States was committed to backing the force for at least two years. The Pentagon now has an estimated on the ground in Syria.

"Structurally, everything is good in my shoulder and I'm [going to] do what's best, take a few days to strengthen it up even more and then try to give it a go Sunday".

Fans accounted for 50 percent of the vote to determine the 2018 NBA All-Star Game starters, while current players and a media panel accounted for 25 percent each. Regardless of how the Cameroonian big man's love life works out, the 76ers playing their best basketball in years, and need to continue to work work work work work for a spot in the NBA Playoffs over the next 41 games. And I'm hopeful that Al (Horford) will make the team as well. His 16 points came on seven-of-16 shooting, but he went 0 for four from three-point range and two for eight from the free-throw line. Rookie Ben Simmons added 8 markers and 7 rebounds. However, star point guard Kyrie Irving was absent for the marquee game.

Embiid had a surprising response when asked by a reporter about the embarrassing rejection years ago.
