Embiid a starter in the All-Star Game



  • Amazing! Congrats to Joel. His play this season has earned him this honor.



  • And now that he is an All-Star he no longer wants Rhiana.



  • I just read that in addition to Jo ,Jo, being named as an NBA all Star starter - he also has been named to the Mountain Dew Kick Start Rising Stars game on the 16th of Feb at 9:00 EST - -8:00 Central time on TNT.

    Jo,Jo, will lead the world team against the team from the US. - -Jo Jo leads all 1st year and 2nd year players in scoring -rebounding and blocked shots. - He is set to become the 1st 76er to start an NBA all star game I think it is since 2006. - -That’s our boy - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Wow, Joel’s rookie teammate Ben Simmons tonight, 19, 17 and 14. That’s a productive night. Joel chipped in 21 but there were no rebounds and assists to go around after Simmons took them all.



  • @wissox Who’s Ben Simmons? ;)

    Not sure if you’re serious or not. If you are I apologize. OAD from Australia who went to LSU. Spectacular talent who I watched from the front row during my Baton Rouge years. I thought I was watching the 2nd coming of Danny Manning. He already has the most triple doubles in NBA history for a rookie. He and Joel are going to win some rings I think. And Fultz hasn’t even played for them yet. They keep drafting OAD’s who get hurt.



  • @wissox Just razzing you. I know who he is, #1 HS players, #1 draft pick, didn’t play for KU. It’s my give a :poop: about an LSU player that is broken. Lotsa great players in the NBA, but I only care about KU guys. For me the best thing about the NBA is it inspires tons of talented kids to try and get that money and the by-product is fantastic college basketball.



  • It’s so weird seeing Simmons out there as a point forward. If only he could make a shot outside of 4 feet. His shot chart this year looks like Doke’s



  • @BeddieKU23 That’s my memory of him at LSU.

    His shooting?

    The game vs the Celtics the day Embiid was announced as a starter they showed Simmons shot chart on the season, 8 made shots outside the paint. Crazy to think how impactful his game is without a shot.



  • @BeddieKU23 yeah, he didn’t have much range. He infamously disappeared during crunch time against Buddy Hield and top ranked OU.

    He infamously disappeared from class as well.

    If you’ve seen his shot lately you’d wonder how he ever makes anything, its god awful





  • @wissox

    Embiid had a very nice game.



  • @JayHawkFanToo Did you watch? I rarely watch more than a few minutes.



  • @wissox

    Yes, I did. A lot of talent and the game was actually competitive for a change; team Curry led the entire game but team LeBron pulled it off at the very end.



  • @BeddieKU23

    Incredibly good news. Thanks for posting it.

    Anyone see this tonight? http://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=22496620&ex_cid=espnapi_public

    I WATCHED BECAUSE OF Jo Jo. - -Could of done without that pre game crap but Jo Jo had the first 5 points of the game - -had a couple of sweet 3 pt shoots - one was pretty deep - -took Durant to the hole had a couple of blocks - -19-8-2 not bad for your 1st NBA all star game - -sit for some long stretches but played pretty well Man what a animal. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    Agreed! Couldn’t be happier for Embiid.

    He should have worn Wiggins jersey on the court like how AD wore cousins jersey! its as close as Wiggins will get to playing in the All star game IMO.



  • Mercy I thought the same thing and now they were talking about it on the local radio sports show - -Fergie - -just plained sucked I mean sucked singing the National Anthem.

    she apologized today saying she is a risk taker and she loves this country and it just didn’t work - In cased you missed it - she tried to put a sexy twist tp THE NATIONAL ANTHEM - -she was just awful

    Charles Barkley said afterwards when she was done he needed a cigarette. - -I mean it was AWFUL - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer73 That was maybe the worst National Athem I’ve ever heard, but she looked into and tired hard. I’m not gonna hate because tried to spice up the night.

    You will be getting a Wiggins Jersey for X-Mas. Better yet I’m sure he can send you a Jersey a day for life with his 146 million dollar contract



  • That was a horrid version of the national anthem. I’ve not heard so much discussion of how bad it was sung sing Roseanne Arnold butchered it intentionally. At least Fergie didn’t pee on stage this time.0_1519138536130_0E9B3BEE-D0DF-4ABB-9D47-EF7968252578.jpeg
