Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid was enjoying a great rookie season this year before getting injured (again), forcing him to the sideline with a torn meniscus. While "The Process" will no longer be on the floor, he will continue to show his game—for the ladies, that is.

Embiid, who has a long history of trying his luck with some of entertainment's sexiest women, focused his attention on singer Rihanna, who he's talked about before as having a major crush on in the past.


Speaking to TMZ Sports while in Los Angeles, Embiid clearly thinks that, if he does end up winning this year's NBA Rookie of the Year Award, Rihanna should give him serious consideration as a future beau, telling her to, "Call on me, man. Hit me up. I love you.”

Strong words and proclamations from the star center. That said, who knows, if he continues to blossom into a star, maybe RiRi will, in fact, give him the chance he's so desperately pleading for.
