Joel Embiid is Sports Illustrated's "Rising Star of the Year" but this photo proves his head is already in the stars.
The Philadelphia 76ers center towered over Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve on the red carpet Tuesday night.
Social media couldn't get enough of the height difference at the awards ceremony.
Altuve, the American League MVP, is 5'6 tall.
Embiid is listed as 7" by the NBA - but the 76ers announce him as 7'2.
