After missing his first two seasons in the National Basketball Association with a foot injury, and losing his younger brother to an incredibly unfortunate vehicle accident back in his home country of Cameroon, Embiid has quickly established himself as one of the leagues best young centers, and in only 72 games has been named an All-Star game starter.
Alas, Embiid's quest came up short last season.
"I feel good about myself", Embiid said while Rowland laughed the entire time.
Reserves will be revealed on Tuesday, Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. ET.by TNT's Players Only crew, and the final All-Star Game rosters will be unveiled on Thursday, Jan. 25 at 7 p.m. ET. on TNT.

The NBA All-Star Game is February 18 in Los Angeles.
Holiday hit a 3-pointer to tie the game with 1:26 left in the fourth quarter, then New Orleans pulled ahead on free throws. It marked the first time a Sixer had scored at least 40 points inn a game since Allen Iverson had 45 on November 27, 2006.
"I'm not sure who voted, but put it out there - whoever voted for me, I really appreciate it", said 76ers guard T.J. McConnell, the proud recipient of two starter votes from players. "Everyone finding out that he's a starter kind of signifies what we already know, how good he is".
Players could vote for themselves. The point guard finished third in fan voting for East guards. And it's a unique game when you're playing hard on one end of the floor but not on the other, but we were just very sloppy, over-dribbled, the dribble didn't take us anywhere, not moving the ball, not getting to spots.
Fans on Twitter are excited too.
