Joel Embiid created quite a stir last night at Senior Night as he allegedly responded to a fan “Yeah I do” that asked if he wanted to come another year. He was back at it this morning when he tweeted the following:
So what does it all mean? Probably nothing as there’s no possible way Joel Embiid is staying another three seasons. Joel Embiid is a top three pick and will more than likely leave for the NBA Draft this year. However, Joel Embiid is either messing with the emotions of KU fans or is being sincere.
I have no doubt emotions played a factor for Embiid last night as he watched three of his teammates deliver speeches to the Allen Fieldhouse crowd. I believe Embiid has enjoyed being a student-athlete at Kansas and if he were a Justin Wesley or Tarik Black, he would stay four years at KU. But he’s neither of those players. He’s a freakishly talented athlete who is coveted by many NBA teams.
So what do you think KU fans? Is Joel Embiid staying another year or is he just toying with your emotions?
