After the hard-hitting news that Brett Brown is on board with Joel Embiid's campaign to become an All-Star so that he'll have a chance with his crush, it was reported yesterday that JoJo just may have a shot.
Embiid came in as the frontcourt player with the fourth most votes in the Eastern Conference. And with plenty of time left to campaign, JoJo hit the tweets to drum up support.
He used a clever -- if old school -- Twitter tactic. He employed a fake retweet of the president-elect of the Unites States, the ratings machine himself Donald J. Trump.
This wasn't the first time JoJo mentioned Trump in a tweet. You may recall after Trump won the electoral college, Embiid tweeted that America was tanking.
While that may or may not be the case, we thought we'd take a look at some of the more creative attempts Embiid supporters have employed to get the big man into the All-Star game and on a date with his crush, Rihanna or otherwise.
There's the straight forward:
There's the Lil Dickey endorsement:
There's a call to patriotism:
There's the cross-team promotion:
There's pulling at Philly's heart strings:
And plenty of other tactics:
There's typically an unexpected standout star in the first few days of training camp every summer, but most times that person is over three-feet tall.
The Eagles kicked off their training camp activities at the NovaCare Complex in South Philadelphia on Monday morning and most of the rookies were there to go through drills.
But it was little T.J. Smith, son of veteran free agent wide receiver Torrey Smith, who stole the show. The two were seen on the field throwing the pigskin around with camera crews filming for a segment for TheUndefeated website.
You see that arm? Nick Foles better not look over his shoulder.
CSNPhilly camera crews also caught up with Smith and his son, the smaller of which is already well versed in doing Eagles chants. Great parenting if I must say.
You can watch that footage in the above video.
What does former Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie's now legendary Process have to do with the WWE? Unclear. But that didn't stop fans at the wrestling match at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday night from breaking into rather loud "Trust the Process!" chants.
You can hear the chants loud in clear in the short video clip below.
As for the rest of the night? The guy we interviewed on The700Level Show last week, A.J. Styles, lost his belt. Which probably means no wrestler should ever talk to us again.
