Joel Embiid Tweets Kobe Bryant Picture to Andrew Wiggins

The Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid bromance on Twitter is well documented. The former Kansas teammates may not be playing on the same team anymore, but the love is clearly not lost.

The two have tweeted at each other several times since the NBA Draft and it appears that playing on separate teams won’t break the bond formed with the Jay Hawks. Joel Embiid was clamoring for the Cavaliers not to trade Wiggins, but much like his Lebron James recruitment, it was a failure. Andrew Wiggins was shipped from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Minnesota Timberwolves and his days in Cleveland were history.

Even though Andrew Wiggins is on his second NBA team without playing a single game for either, the Cameroon native believes that Wiggins has a bright future ahead of him. Embiid tweet a picture of Kobe Bryant wearing a Hornets hat from draft day in 1996, before he was traded to the Lakers.

Embiid believes that Wiggins will have an impact on the game similar to Kobe Bryant. Before he was drafted, Wiggins was being lauded as a future Hall of Fame player, even though the hype has cooled considerably.

Do you believe that Andrew Wiggins is destined for greatness in Minnesota?
