Joel Embiid celebrated his first NBA All-Star selection with 26 points and matched a career best with 16 rebounds Thursday night, leading the Philadelphia 76ers to an 89-80 victory against the Boston Celtics. I guess that's what happens to people who don't "Trust the process".

Reaching the All-Star Game for the first time is a milestone for any player, but it has special significance for Joel Embiid.

Kiwi big man Steven Adams, who is having a career year with the Oklahoma City Thunder, failed to make the top-10 in voting for starters in the Western Conference, however he is still a possibility to take part in the game.

Back in 2014, the Kansas product fired off multiple tweets in an attempt to woo the "Disturbia" artist.

The 67th NBA All-Star Game will be played on February 18 at the STAPLES Center and broadcasted on TNT and ESPN Radio. However, according to Embiid, "a famous girl" he was trying to get with told him to come back when he was an All-Star. I think at this stage he's a longshot, because the coaches who select the reserves tend to reward longevity and assume young guys will eventually get their chance. The West group is just as stacked, featuring Golden State's Steph Curry and Kevin Durant, Houston's James Harden, and New Orleans' Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins.

One dead after Florida casino shuttle fire
Coast Guard said that the fire happened near the mouth of the Coty River near New Port Richey, northwest of Tampa. Rescue crews initially reported everyone made it to shore, but now say one person is unaccounted for.

"I felt like it should have happened a year ago", Embiid said of his selection prior to the game.

Embiid has scored in double figures in 46 consecutive games, the longest streak by a Philadelphia player in the past five seasons.

Fans accounted for 50 percent of the vote to determine the 2018 NBA All-Star Game starters, while current players and a media panel accounted for 25 percent each. "I'm not excited just about myself, I'm excited for the whole city of Philadelphia". "But hopefully, back-to-backs by the end of this month, I will be allowed to play". Embiid scored 20 or more points for the 24th time this season. He became the first player in National Basketball Association history with at least 46 points, 15 rebounds, seven blocks and seven assists in a game.

It's been a breakout year for the Sixers, the team shows flashes of something special when Ben Simmons and Embiid play together. Reality struck when Embiid's dreams came to a halt after being turned down by - who many assumed to be Rih-Rih - tweeting, "This is the truth".
