Joel Embiid Tweets ‘I’m a Laker’


If Joel Embiid didn’t understand the power of social media before, he definitely knows now. A tweet appeared on the former Kansas center’s account today that essentially said he was going to be drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in tonight’s NBA Draft.

However, Embiid would quickly delete the tweet and clarify that it did not come from him, but rather one of his friends.

He also made it clear he would like all of us to get out of his Twitter mentions.
