Joel Embiid is an NBA All-Star, and he found out in the most peculiar way possible — signing autographs.
Embiid — two months shy of his 24th birthday, and with only 62 career games under his belt — was announced as one of five Eastern Conference players voted to start this year’s All-Star Game, slated for February 18th at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles.
Embiid is averaging 23.8 points per game, 10.8 rebounds, 3.7 assist and 1.9 blocks per game.
