Julius Erving on Ben Simmons: Once in a decade, maybe once in a lifetime type player

Julius Erving might’ve had the highest praise of  Ben Simmons yet.

A few hours after the Philadelphia 76ers paid tribute to the Hall-of-Famer Dr. J with a sculpture of him outside of their practice facility in Camden, Erving had this to say about the superstar rookie point guard.

That’s as good as it gets right there.

Simmons has 11 triple-doubles during his first year, the second most all-time for a rookie and third in the NBA this season overall. He has averages of 15.8 points, 8.2 rebounds and 8.0 assists per game so far during his dazzling freshman campaign.
