The Ben Simmons Sixers show officially began on Monday night. Well, at least as far as NBA Summer League is concerned.
While it wasn't the regular season, Monday night's Sixers-Celtics battle in the Utah Summer League did give basketball fans a glimpse at Ben Simmons in a Sixers uniform (during a game) for the first time.
The 6'10" point forward didn't disappoint, scoring 10 points, grabbing eight rebounds and dishing out five assists. Simmons, a 67-percent free-throw shooter in one year at LSU, hit all three of his free-throw attempts on Monday evening.
Here was some of the reaction to Simmons' play, which included having to depart the game in the second half due to leg cramps.
