Joel Embiid Predicts Kobe Bryant’s MVP Ranking In Two Years
[new_royalslider id=”298″]

One of the most entertaining professional athletes on Twitter over the past few months has been Joel Embiid. Hands down. No contest.

The seven-footer won’t get a chance to showcase his skills in Philadelphia anytime soon, but he’s been as active as can be on the Twittersphere for a player set to miss most or all of his rookie season.

Embiid’s latest antics on Twitter have him dubbing himself the favorite to win the NBA MVP award in a couple of years. Embiid has yet to play a minute in the NBA, but he’s shoo-in for MVP in his opinion:

Most people will see a few things wrong with Embiid’s rankings. Obviously, he’s doing it for fun and it shouldn’t be taken seriously in any way, but let’s break it down regardless.

First of all, where is Kevin Durant?

Durant is coming off the best season of his career beating out LeBron for MVP honors in convincing fashion. No disrespect to the Twitter guru, but come on, Embiid! Durant didn’t even make the list?

Second, Los Angeles Lakers fans will love it, but the rest of the world won’t. Kobe Bryant is third in the MVP rankings behind LeBron, and of course, Embiid.

At 38, it’s doubtful Kobe is competing with LeBron and the social media master as the league’s most valuable player. Even Kobe would agree if he’s still playing or trying to build his own empire with Kobe Inc. A case could be made for the ridiculousness of Chris Bosh at number four, too.

Regardless of Embiid’s misguided prediction, the former Jayhawk isn’t sulking in the corner after being passed over in the draft or landing with arguably the worst team in the league. Embiid continues to be hilarious on Twitter and a must-follow for any NBA fan.

From tweets to Kim Kardashian and Rihanna trying to land a date to recruiting LeBron James to the 76ers, the 20-year-old has become a social media superstar in only a matter of months.

Hopefully he continues to entertain us while trying to work his way back on the court.

Get well soon, big fella!
