This Photo of Joel Embiid and Jose Altuve Standing Side-By-Side Is Perfect (PIC)

Joel Embiid is an NBA center, so he’s a pretty big guy. Jose Altuve is one of the best players in baseball, but he has a diminutive stature for an athlete in most any sport, save for maybe gymnastics or horse racing. Standing side-by-side, the size difference between the two world-class athletes becomes hilariously clear.

This is what 7’0″ vs. 5’6″ looks like. The difference is stark.


To Altuve’s credit, even with the shot panned back, Embiid makes J.J. Watt look…normal-sized.

Are we sure Joel isn’t like 7’3″ or something? That looks like a towering 7’0″ figure if I’ve ever seen one.
