As fans across all sports will tell you, Philadelphia fans are among the most loyal and faithful around. Basketball is not just a game in the city of Brotherly Love - it's a lifestyle. From the outdoor courts to the gyms, basketball is a way of life in Philadelphia. When the 76ers made Ben Simmons the first overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, it came with extremely high expectations for the Australian native who played just one season at LSU. He averaged a double-double with the Tigers (19.2 points, 11.8 rebounds), and that's expected to be the norm for him in the NBA. The triple-double is back in style at the sport's highest level, and Simmons is the perfect fit to carry on the tradition. With his 6'10" size and incredible abilities with the ball in his hands, he'll be poised to lead the Sixers back to greatness for years to come.
