Philadelphia is abuzz today with news that the 76ers were able to secure a workout with Ben Simmons — then assure him he’d be the No. 1 pick and announce that Joel Embiid is ready to go.
The 76ers have spent the better part of three-years tanking — hoping to land a transcendent player with the top pick at some point.
Luckily for 76ers fans — the final attempt at perfection may turn out to have lasting results over the next 7-10 years.
Simmons knows he’ll be the top pick on Thursday night — so he took to Instagram to start winning over the fans who trusted the process.
