PHILADELPHIA -- With tanking behind them, the Philadelphia 76ers have officially kicked off the Ben Simmons Era.
One day after he was chosen with the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft, Simmons and the Sixers' No. 24 pick, Timothe Luwawu, were introduced at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine on Friday afternoon.
Sixers general manager Bryan Colangelo sat in between the team's two top draft picks and proclaimed the day a catalyst of change for a franchise looking to climb from the depths of the NBA.
