Before both being honored during the Sports Illustrated 2017 Sportsperson of the Year Awards on Tuesday night at the Barclays Center, Embiid and Altuve posed for pictures alongside J.J. Altuve, the hit machine and second baseman for the World Series-winning Astros, is 5-foot-6 and 165 pounds.

"By the third week of September, less than a month after Hurricane Harvey had devastated Houston and its surrounding region, Watt had raised more than $37 million in relief aid".

The pair will accept the honor at SI's Sportsperson of the Year Award Show on Tuesday at Barclays Center in NY. More than 200,000 people donated to the campaign before Watt closed the donation phase and moved to distributing the money.

"All I did was give people a way to help... But what other event can bring a million-plus people together and provide a platform, however ephemeral, to cast aside the differences that drive so many of us to sports in the first place?" "So when they were having a hard time, I wanted to give something back to them".

Altuve and the Astros won the 2017 World Series in November when they defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in seven games.

"Since day one that I got to Houston, people have been helping me to become a better player, and I felt like I owe them something", Altuve said. Championships don't save communities, and we should be careful to assign too much weight to their powers of healing.

In Sports Illustrated's release, they explained Watt and Altuve's impact on the city of Houston.

"The city of Houston has treated me really good".

That's why Watt is happy he gets to share the Sportsperson of the Year Award not only with Altuve, but with those who contributed to the recovery process as well. "It's an award for all of Houston".
