Joel Embiid is hitting on Rihanna again — see hilarious tweets

Not only did his shoot his shot in a tweet directly at the pop star, he left his hand up on a follow-through tweet about his ascension as an All-Star.

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid, who's recovering from recent surgery to repair a fractured orbital bone on the left side of his face, is out here shooting his shot at pop superstar Rihanna again.

Perhaps the meds got him hyped up again. Maybe it was his need for some happiness within his lift, with him shelved and his Kansas Jayhawks getting washed in industrial strength bleach by Villanova.

Whatever it was, he's at it again.

Babe are you single or nah? @rihanna

After Embiid was selected as an All-Star, he claimed to be over Rihanna, after his social media-centric pursuit of the "Needed Me" singer.

"She denied me back then, so why go with her again? I might have to pass that and move on to the next one. ... Trust the Process," Embiid told TNT at one point.

Seeing the error of his ways, the franchise center even doubled down, quoting himself and referring to his All-Star status.

No word on whether Rihanna will even see his tweet, much less respond.
