The Philadelphia 76ers big man turned to the pop superstar after striking out with Kim Kardashian, getting her to follow him on Twitter at the very least – and depending on whom or what you want to believe, perhaps more.

Joel Embiid Tweets Boneheaded Ray Rice Joke

Joel Embiid

Unfortunately, we have to write about the Ray Rice fiasco that’s currently dominating water cooler conversations around the country while increasingly turning off fans to the horrific job NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has done in the wake of Rice’s brutal punch of then-fiancé Janay Rice (neé Palmer).
