The ESPN cameras were in Joel Embiid's face immediately after Adam Silver announced him as the third overall selection in the 2014 NBA Draft to the Philadelphia 76ers.
Embiid had a stone cold look of nothingness. Kind of weird for a guy who just went third overall, right?
Turns out, the TV Embiid was watching was on some sort of delay. They later showed his actual reaction on the ESPN telecast and the big man was all smiles.
Just to set the record straight, Embiid sent the following tweet to reasure Philly fans that he is actually stoked to head to Philly and team up with youngsters like Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel.
Noel's message read, "Hello Philly!!!! This is my real "Just got drafted" face. Couldnt be happier to be a 76er!!! "
