Ben Simmons


“You have more millions than you have years of your life,” said Jimmy Fallon to Ben Simmons, who is expected to be the number-one overall NBA Draft pick on Thursday.

Although the 6 foot, 10 inch basketball player hasn’t entered the league yet, he’s already signed a $20 million deal with Nike, and since the sportswear brand doesn’t produce tailored clothing, Simmons announced on the “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” that he would be wearing a suit by Brioni to the event, which will take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday night.

He also revealed that although he could be playing in Philadelphia for the 76ers — they have the number-one overall pick — he’s never had a Philly cheesesteak from the City of Brotherly Love. Fallon fixed that by offering him one from the popular Philly restaurant Dalessandro’s.

“I could live in Philly,” said Simmons after taking a bite out of the sandwich. See the clip below:
