Following one All-America season at LSU, Ben Simmons declared for the NBA Draft, and the Philadelphia 76ers chose him first overall in 2016. After sitting out the 2016-17 season with an injury, Simmons made his NBA debut on 10/18/17. He notched a double-double in his debut and recorded triple-doubles on a consistent basis the rest of his rookie campaign. But more impressive than that was the leadership the Australian native showed from day one. He brought a calming voice and steady on-court leadership qualities to a young Sixers team. His first step into the NBA was certainly an impressive one. What has been even more impressive is his consistent, blistering form throughout his Rookie Season. Having notched his 8th triple-double, Simmons now sits alone at second on the all-time list of triple-doubles scored during a Rookie season – ahead of Magic Johnson and sitting behind Oscar Robertson. Elite company to say the least.
