The Sixers earned another last-second win on Friday night while Joel Embiid was sitting on the bench after banging up his knee against the Portland Trail Blazers.
So with Embiid on the bench, someone else had to step up and be the MVP.
And then Embiid tweeted something mysterious following the game.
Danielle is the real MVP— Joel Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) January 21, 2017
Who is this Danielle and why is she the MVP?
The folks over at TCN's Breakfast on Broad did some digging this morning and may have unearthed who the "Danielle" Embiid was referring to was.
This is her on Friday night.
After going through the game footage, they found this shot of Embiid with a very pretty young lady who they believe to be Canadian model Danielle Knudson. Now, her Wiki page says she was dating some tennis player as of a year or so ago. But times and dating habits can change.
Could Danielle Knudson be Embiid's celebrity crush?
You'll also notice Embiid's latest Instagram was posted from the location listed as "Danielle's."
Another possible theory: Joel Embiid is messing with all of us regarding his "celebrity crush" and getting a date by making the All-Star Game. He prob just has a crush on a model and made up the whole date-if-he-makes-the-ASG thing.
