NBA draft star is a massive Miley Cyrus fan

Joel Embiid could well be the first name called off the board in Adam Silver's reign as NBA commissioner when the draft roles around at the end of June.

The former Kansas Jayhawks dominating big man is a fierce proposition on the hardwood, but away from the court it seems like the 7 footer has excellent guilty pleasures.

Speaking to USA Today Sports ahead of the NBA draft lottery in New York City, the Cameroonian admitted to being a big Miley Cyrus fan. 

The highly talented 20-year old event went on to divulge that her song with Mike Will Made It, '23', is his absolute favourite off her back catalogue.

“I’m a pretty good singer,” Embiid said. “I also like to dance. A LOT.”

With the Cleveland Cavaliers getting the first pick in the lottery last night, Embiid has a great chance to be number one with the sides obvious troubles in the frontcourt. It would be an incredible story for the youngster who only started playing basketball a few years ago.

This isn't Miley Cyrus' first appearance on GMS either. We had this story a while back about a fan at a college basketball game putting off free-throw shooters by screaming the lyrics to Miley's hit song 'Wrecking Ball.'
