Fast forward to 2018 where Embiid is averaging 23.9 points a game, shooting 48.7 percent and was selected as a starter for this season's All-Star Game.

Now that Embiid has been named an All-Star for the first time, several fans looked back to when Embiid got drafted.

Considering the fact this was just Cleveland's fourth win in their last 13 games, LeBron James took the victory for what it was and nothing more.
