The 2017-18 NBA season saw the Philadelphia 76ers improve on their 2016-17 record by a staggering 24 victories. The bulk of this massive improvement came from the 76ers massive Australian import, the 6’11” rookie sensation Ben Simmons. With Simmons running the point and Joel Embiid handling the dirty work in the low post, the 76ers shocked the NBA establishment by winning 52 games and nabbing the third seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs. Simmons led the team like a seasoned veteran, scoring 15.8 points per game while spreading the ball across the floor (8.2 assists) and crashing the glass (8.1 rebounds) like Jerry Lucas in his prime. Although a spot in the Conference Finals eluded the young Sixers, this scrappy band of blue-chip young guns and battle-tested veterans ran off a 15-game winning streak to end the regular season on a high note. As “The Process” heads to fruition, Simmons has proven himself to be the franchise centerpiece in the City of Brotherly Love as he earned the 2017-18 Rookie of the Year Award.

Simmons wore this blue “Icon Edition” 76ers jersey during the team’s 121-110 home victory against the Indiana Pacers on November 3rd, 2017. Simmons recorded the second triple-double of his career in this decisive victory, putting up 14 points to go with 11 rebounds and 11 dimes. The LSU product was a terror on both ends of the floor, swatting three shots and grabbing two steals to help lock down the Sixers fifth win of the young season.

This jersey has “PHILA” sewn across the chest in white and red tackle twill. Simmons’ number “25” has been sewn on the chest and the back of this jersey in white “mesh-style” tackle twill with a red border. “SIMMONS” is sewn across the back shoulders in white tackle twill. The NBA logo is applied to the back outside collar of this Nike Aeroswift jersey. A gold tag indicating Philadelphia’s three NBA titles is sewn on the white-red-white band that accents the collar. The white-red-white band also accents the sleeve openings. The sides of this jersey are white and red, with four stars sewn on each side in blue tackle twill. A white Nike swoosh logo is applied to the right chest, while a “StubHub” patch is sewn on the left chest. “Brotherly Love” is embroidered in gold letters on the front left tail above the NBA Authentics size “50” tag. A “Length +4” flag is attached to the tag. This jersey comes with a COA from Fanatics (AA0023167) and it has been photo matched by Sports Investors (180526A1) to the November 3rd game.
