Watch Joel Embiid Pick Al Horford’s Brain About GOAT At NBA All-Star Game

Boston Celtics big man Al Horford is an established and respected NBA veteran, and Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid is a remarkable talent settling into an NBA career after battling injuries.

And believe it or not, both players weren’t totally sold on it being Michael Jordan.
