During Tuesday’s Sports Illustrated’s 2017 Sportsperson of the Year Show, Embiid, Altuve, Houston Texans linebacker J.J. Watt, and the now-retired slugger Jose Beltran all gathered for the event and even posed for a group picture while they’re on the red carpet.
Here’s an uncropped version of the photo:

Altuve is listed only as 5’5” while Embiid stands 7’0”. The reigning American League MVP seemed small enough to even fit inside Embiid’s pants. Embiid is so big even Watt, who stands 6’5”, was dwarfed by the Sixers big man’s presence.
This wasn’t the first time that Embiid startled people with his size when making an appearance next to anything or anyone related to baseball. Back in July, Embiid attended the Home Run Derby and luckily caught a ball. Then he tweeted this photo, which was comparable to Godzilla scooping up a ship from the ocean.

While they’re very much different in terms of physical size, both Joel Embiid and Jose Altuve share at least one similarity – they are both products “The Process.”
