Watch: Ben Simmons eats a Philly cheesesteak on Jimmy Fallon


The vibes were all Philly last night when presumptive No. 1 pick Ben Simmons appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Not only did The Roots jam a little, "1-2-3-4-5 Sixers" as Simmons came out, they also booed Los Angeles. And Jimmy and Ben enjoyed an authentic Philadelphia cheesesteak from Dalessandro's.

Now, credit to Jimmy for going out of his way to get a legit steak for Ben, but the Roxborough natives are none too pleased he says it was from North Philly.

Simmons talked about his Australian accent, his deal with Nike, his relationship with LeBron James, and the Brioni suit he plans to wear on Thursday night. Jimmy hopes Simmons' looks a little sharper than LeBron James looked going to his first holy communion.

Not a bad Tuesday for Simmons. He worked out for the Sixers in Philadelphia and was later apparently promised by the team to be the first overall pick in the draft. Then he got to enjoy a delicious cheesesteak while hanging out with the Roots.
