Ben Simmons Eats a Dalessandro's Cheesesteak, Becomes a True Philadelphian

He's had a couple cheesesteaks before, but "not in Philly."

It's basically written in stone, Ben Simmons, the big dude from LSU who, up until yesterday, was still battling it out with Brandon Ingram for the #1 slot in the NBA Draft, is coming to Philly. Last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Aussie forward chomped into a Dalessandro's cheesesteak. After his first bite? "I could live in Philly."

Well that's a good thing, considering.
