Joel Embiid might have something in common with Iron Man.
The NBA Draft Lottery takes place tonight at 8:30 p.m. E.T. The Boston Celtics have the best odds at the No. 1 overall pick, with slightly better than a 25 percent chance. The Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers round out the top three.
One team that could end up with two top-five picks, however, might be able to steal the show. The Philadelphia 76ers have nearly a 40 percent chance to land two top-five picks in this year’s lottery. And the man that will present the pick for the 76ers? Well, he’s making headlines of his own.
Former Kansas Jayhawk, and current 76er, Joel Embiid showed up to ESPN’s headquarters wearing a rather interesting ensemble.
Check it out.

Embiid looks to be channeling his inner Iron Man. However, it’s not the red suit or the gold shoes that are stealing the show here. If you look closely, it looks like angel on Embiid’s chain is dabbing.
That’s right. The angel on his chain is doing the move Cam Newton made famous.
We’ve never seen anything quite like it. Embiid truly is one of a kind.
