UPDATE: Joel Embiid blocks LeBron on Twitter after recruiting effort ignored
Jul 3, 2014 at 11:11a ET
Embiid made his initial pitch on Tuesday:
LeBron never got back to Embiid -- maybe because he's on a boat watching his son make a bid for "Wicked Tuna":
So undeterred, Embiid followed up on Wednesday, poking fun at his own tape-delayed reaction:
I hope i'm not gonna get fined already with those Lebron's tweets is it legal to recruit over twitter @NBA ?— Joel-Hans Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) July 3, 2014
UPDATE 7/4/2014: After three days without a response, Embiid had clearly had enough: The Philadelphia rookie made a drastic move and blocked LeBron James from his Twitter feed, effectively cancelling his social media effort to woo the two-time NBA champ to the Sixers:
Can't wait to see Embiid try that same move in person when they meet on the court.
