Back in 2014 when he was a rookie in the NBA Joel Embiid admitted that he attempted to shoot his shot at Rihanna but she quickly shut him down and told him to ask her again once he became an all-star.

Today, it was announced that the 23-year-old big man was among the five Eastern Conference players to be a starter in this year’s NBA All-Star game on February 18

After the news broke on social media NBA fans quickly began flooding Rihanna’s Instagram page to let her know about Embiid’s upcoming appearance in the all-star game.

After tonight’s Sixers-Celtics game Embiid was asked by TNT sideline reporter Kristin Ledlow if he was still interested in dating Rihanna now that he was named an all-star starter and the Sixers big man had a pretty amazing answer.

She deny me back then so why go with her again? I have to pass and move on to the next one.

Joel Embiid might be the first person in the world to ever turn down Rihanna. Amazing.
