Joel Embiid Credits Bill Self With Putting Him In Position "To Realize His Dreams" In Instagram Post

Most basketball fans could safely assume that Andrew Wiggins would be a one-and-done player for Kansas after all of the hype that was heaped on him as a high school player. Joel Embiid wasn't expected to have the same instant impact, but if not for an unfortunate string of injuries, he may very well be going ahead of Wiggins in tonight's NBA Draft.

Embiid seems incredibly grateful for the chance to play in the NBA after just one year at KU, and credits Jayhawks coach Bill Self with the opportunity.
