Sixers big man Joel Embiid is one of the most entertaining players in the NBA, and also one of the most dominant.
The seven-footer is one of the few “old-school” big men remaining in the NBA, as he loves to pound the ball inside to score, rather then finessing or stepping out to routinely shoot three-pointers.
Embiid’s ability to stay healthy so he can dominate on the court is a big reason the team is a contender to win the Eastern Conference this year, and we’re interested to see if the team can finally put it all together and make a deep run to the NBA Finals.
That remains to be seen, but we do know Embiid is crushing life off the court, as he’s been dating Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Anne de Paula.
The two made it official after one of the Sixers’ recent games, sharing a big kiss on the court.
Here are some more photos of the two of them together, via
And some more photos of the beautiful de Paula, for your viewing pleasure.
