Joel Embiid appears to have found himself a Valentine — or maybe not

Joel Embiid appears to maybe have a Valentine this year.

So much for needing to make the All-Star team in order to date his crush. We suspected that was JoJo playing the media for a while.

The message along with the photo reads:

Happy Valentines Day to this hunk @joelembiid Thank you for being you. I'm so proud of you. You are the most loyal person to me in this crazy life! And to me that's priceless ❤ #ShipDocked

 

However, shortly thereafter, Embiid crushed this bit of Valentine's day gossip, noting that it's not only fake news but also old news (which it appears to be, spelling of his name aside).

 

Joel Embiid, Olivia Pierson

 

Anyway, who is this young lady who shared a photo of herself with a shirtless Joel? Her name is Olivia Pierson and she has appeared on E!'s television series WAGS.

She also recently spoke with US Weekly and shared some interesting facts about herself.

She thinks Bo Jackson is the greatest athlete of all-time so we're not sure she's watched much of JoJo's rookie season.

Her favorite color is blue which I guess helps with her Sixers fandom. She doesn't like beer, which is suspect, has a celeb crush on Leo DiCaprio, and would eat Shake Shack as her last meal. Which is okay, I guess.

She also appears to be a fashion/style blogger of sorts. Here she is teaching you how to pull off a nice top knot. Or something. 

The more you know.

LeBron James suggests taking Ben Simmons out drinking

LeBron James suggests taking Ben Simmons out drinking

Turning twenty-one years old is a big deal!

It's such a big deal that some people don't even remember it. Ugh.

Kidding!

Anyway, Ben Simmons turned 21 years old today and to celebrate, he got a fun tweet from the greatest player in the NBA and likely Future Sixer LeBron James.

The Shirley Temple line really made it. Such a nice touch and a clear afirmation that LeBron will be joining Simmons on the Sixers for the 2018-2019 seasons, yes?

In all seriousness this flirty little bromance between LBJ and Ben may be nothing more than good marketing from their business partners, but it's fun to joke/dream about regardless.

Mets produce Noah Syndergaard bobblehead that's just kind of phallic

The Mets...

They're only slightly better than the Phillies on the diamond but they're way more fun to poke fun at off of it.

When Mr. Met isn't acting like a [eggplant emoji] to fans at CitiField, the team is busy producing bobbleheads that look like [eggplant emoji] to actually hand to fans. The first 15,000 fans at this Saturday's game with the Oakland Athletics will get a special treat.

As Deadspin points out, the Mets will give away this lovely Noah Syndergaard bobblehead that contains a hammer of strange design.
