Joel Embiid is a social media wizard, beloved by fans around the NBA for his jocular, quick-witted tone. On Thursday, after Embiid was left of the Eastern Conference reserves for the 2017 NBA All-Star Game, Embiid hit us with another one.

In a simple tweet sent that afternoon, Embiid compared his situation to that of Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump.

Via Twitter:

Got ’em.

Meanwhile, Embiid’s pact with an unnamed famous female celebrity for a date if he made the All-Star Game is on hold.

Bummer, dude.
