The Philadelphia 76ers have made a habit of selecting big men early in the past three NBA drafts, most recently Duke's Jahlil Okafor. Joel Embiid, who was the team's first overall pick in 2014, welcomed Okafor to the fold on Instagram this afternoon.

Now all Embiid needs to do is hopefully stay healthy enough to join Okafor on the court.
