After a 19-63 record last season, which included an abysmal 26-game losing streak, the 76ers can use all of the help they can get.

Embiid decided to block LeBron on the site just three days after he sent his initial tweets. He probably DM'd me but I dont read my DMs so I'm gonna go ahead and block him http://t.co/PunjHSiQRI— Joel-Hans Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) July 04, 2014 The ...
