Folks, it looks like the rumors that Joel Embiid has gained weight and is out of shape have been exaggerated. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft showed off his athleticism, and proved he’s healthy with an incredible pre-game between the legs dunk.

A between-the-legs dunk is highly-impressive for a seven-footer like Embiid, but there’s no way he can also hit three-pointers right? Check out Embiid’s silky-smooth shooting stroke in the vine below.
