Simmons hasn't played a minute of a real NBA game yet but we did get glimpses of him in last year's Summer League, so this isn't quite up there with the Embiid-level hype.

Still, it's exciting to see Simmons back on the court doing things you'd expect of the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft. Hopefully he'll be joined by another No. 1 overall pick in the 2017-2018 season.
