With the No.1 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers select.........Ben Simmons.

Simmons becomes just the second Australian to be selected with the first overall pick after the Milwaukee Bucks selected Andrew Bogut back in 2005.

Coming out of LSU after just one season, the 6'10" forward averaged 19.2 points on 56% shooting, 11.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists and two steals per game.

The 19-year-old from Melbourne is a gifted ambidextrous forward who can go coast-to-coast like Lebron James and share the rock like Magic Johnson. 

With Simmons, the Sixers will hope they have a player who can take them back to the promise-land, much like their last No.1 overall pick back in 1996 - Allen Iverson.
