After a rookie campaign that ended in a playoff berth and some shiny Rookie of the Year hardware, Philadelphia 76ers point guard Ben Simmons is looking for ways to take both his game and his team to another level. And what better way to do that than by linking up again with the newest member of the Los Angeles Lakers and the best basketball player on the planet?
Simmons shared of a photo of himself and LeBron James after a workout, a pairing that isn’t exactly new. The two share an agency, and LeBron was often by Simmons’ side last summer as Simmons readied himself for his first year in the NBA after missing all of his inaugural season due to injury.
After the season Simmons had, though, seeing these two behemoths together is an increasingly terrifying sight, especially since LeBron’s departure has opened the door wide open in the Eastern Conference. With LeBron’s guidance, Simmons might just burst on through it.
