Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid is living his best life this summer. He got the “tough guy” teammate he wanted in P.J. Tucker, plus the triumphant return of a highly motivated James Harden. The Sixers are once again among the favorites in the Eastern Conference.
Embiid has been eerily quiet this offseason, aside from a tweet that may have been about Kevin Durant. He has chosen to fly under the radar. But it’s hard for a 7-footer to go unnoticed at a huge celebrity wedding, especially when he’s out there mixing it up on the dance floor.
He was spotted doing the traditional Jewish Hora dance on July 16 during Michael Ratner and Lauren Rothberg’s wedding in Napa Valley, California.

Embiid was seen getting lifted in the chair with a bridesmaid while smiling gleefully for the cameras. The crowd was loving every minute of it.
Mazel tov Joel Embiid!
How many people did it take to lift that chair!
JoJo doing the Hora. This is epic

Embiid appeared to be one of Ratner’s groomsmen, along with Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker and retired NBA player Chandler Parsons. Booker, accompanied by Kendall Jenner, is standing next to Embiid in one viral photo. Wonder what they were talking about? Remember, Jenner once dated Ben Simmons.

And Embiid and Booker have been extra friendly this summer at parties and in interviews. Ratner is a Hollywood filmmaker who worked on a 2016 documentary chronicling Embiid’s journey from Cameroon to Kansas.
