76ers Joel Embiid Selects Jersey Number

Joel Embiid is garnering attention a week or so removed from the 2014 NBA Draft where he was selected with the No. 3 overall pick. First, he was tweeting at LeBron James — and continues too — in order to lure the King to Philadelphia. A pipe dream at this point, but you have to love this kids determination. Hopefully he uses that towards his rehab.

The second thing is that Embiid has chosen what number he will wear with the 76ers.

With Embiid selecting No. 11, the Jrue Holiday era is officialy over and the Joel Embiid era has begun. Anyone else have a Jrue Holiday jersey like myself? Let’s agree to put a piece of duct tape on it and put Embiid’s name on it, okay? That’s the only way to salvage all that money that was spent.

So, the new hashtags for Joel Embiid appear to be #EMB11D, so feel free to use that at your leisure. Oh yeah, also remember that these girls ain’t loyal, right Joel?
