The 2016 NBA Draft is over and the Philadelphia 76ers selected Ben Simmons as their 1st overall pick. Most basketball analysts sees Simmons as the younger version of LeBron James which also means that he is a type of basketball player who will bring new set of skills in the league.
At last Philadelphia has drafted and added a top caliber player in their roster who is presently healthy and ready to play unlike their previous years draft picks.
However, back to our basketball cards hobby, it seems that Panini isn’t yet ready or perhaps haven’t made a close deal with Simmons to produce his basketball cards. Look at the below twitter and instagram posts of Panini and it appears that the current no.1 pick for this years’ draft is not included.

There are rumors that Ben Simmons have signed with Upper Deck, same company that currently have the rights for Michael Jordan and LeBron James.
There are also rumors that probably Panini is keeping the best for the last. Anyway, it’s just several hours have passed after the 2016 NBA Draft got concluded. We will see in the coming days what will really be the real score.
