As the NBA summer rolls along, some things never change and thankfully one of those is Joel Embiid’s Twitter game which remains strong as ever.
After recent attempts at wooing both Kim Kardashian and Rihanna over Twitter, the Embiid romance rollercoaster took another wild turn. Embiid ”revealed” that Andi Dorfman……the girl form the Bachelorette had in fact chosen the Philly big man over actual contestants Josh and Nick.
As far as moving on from Rihanna, Embiid’s brilliant Twitter avatar suggests otherwise.
If the creators of NBA 2K15 have any sense, the will be bringing the #Johanna cover to stores near you soon.
Rihanna even gave Embiid a follow on Twitter a few days back so it appears we have the age-old case of the NBA/singer/reality TV star, love triangle. A subject which my sources confirm has a whole three-hour seminar dedicated to at the Rookie Transition Program, so i’m sure he will be just fine.
I will actually never get sick of this guy. Ever
Today, Tom & Benyam caught up with Brock Motum at Australia’s pre-FIBA World Cup camp for a quick chat.
The boys chat with Brock about his season playing in Italy with Bologna and his development playing with the Boomers throughout the year, leading into making the Australian team for the upcoming FIBA World Cup.
The boys also look back on Brock’s recent experiences playing for the Utah Jazz Summer League team alongside fellow Aussie Dante Exum.
The audio for this also appears in Episode 203 of the podcast.

USA Basketball camps bring together the best players in the country all trying to impress coaching staff, so when you get this many guys competing in this atmosphere, you’re going to get guys wanting to dunk on each other, swat each other and generally show who’s top dog.
Today that was Andre Drummond, who according to reports, not only blocked Draymond out of the gym, took his lunch money and left with his girlfriend.
Last month, tongues were wagging at Chandler Parsons’ A+ swag move of signing the Dallas Mavericks $46 million offer sheet in a nightclub with Mark Cuban.
I mean, that is pretty cool, but nothing says “I’m cooler than you and there’s nothing you can do about it,” more than signing a three-year, $22 million extension on the deck of a luxury boat.
The Spurs not only get another three years of Boris Diaw’s awesomely versatile play, they get another three years of Bo-Bo: the daydreaming, frogging, sailing adventureman.
After his failed free agency recruitment of LeBron James via Twitter, the hilarious Joel Embiid didn’t let that slow his Twitter game one bit.
Having just signed up with Adidas, Embiid was feeling pretty ‘happy with it’ and took to Twitter to get the attention of Kim Kardashian.
After discovering that she is in fact married, Embiid, the gentleman that he is, quickly rebuffed his advances.
After this latest failed Twitter foray, Embiid decided that perhaps it was time for another self-imposed ban. A ban that I 100% do not agree with, more Embiid on Twitter for everyone, all day erryday.
NBA players are some of the most active celebrities on Twitter and also some of the most criticised and talked about people in the twittersehpere, so really this segment couldn’t be more appropriate.
Marco Polo just got taken to a whole new level with Dikembe Mutombo and Jimmy Kimmel.
Here’s how you play they game. One person who is blindfolded yells out “Dikembe”, while the other person, who also happens to be Dikembe Mutombo hides and yells out Mutttooommmmbo.
I don’t know why this exists, but its great…………Dikeeeembee……Mutttooommmmbo
The most missed man from the 2013/14 NBA season dropped into Sway in the Morning to chat about the playoffs, Lance Stephenson, ice hockey, comparing the Miami Heat to Floyd Mayweather and #JugLife.
But for the grand finale, Sway gets JaVale McGee to drop a freestyle verse….which actually isn’t terrible, catapulting him to number one on my NBA players who should release a rap album list.
Every year there are two birthdays in the NBA calendar that are certainties to provide the best guest lists, entertainment, gee-ups and birthday boys. We’ve already seen Chris Bosh’s carnival offering for 2014, so now it is time for the grand daddy of them all Nick ‘Swaggy P’ Young’s 90’s themed birthday party.
Swag on Swaggy.
P.S. this party looks amazing. From John Wall in a Steve Smith Hawks throwback, Steve ‘Flinstone’ Nash, to Jordan ‘Saved by the Bell’ Farmar, this party has it all.
American television has graced us with yet another priceless reality talent show and I think this one takes the cake. From what I can gather, “Sing Your Face Off” pits celebrity contestants against each other, to transform themselves into a new musical impersonation every week.
We got a sneak preview of the show, with Toronto Raptors guard Landry Fields‘ awesome Lionel Richie performance. Landry has led the league with the best voice in the NBA and finally he has been given a platform to showcase it.
Check out his performance below:
