More and more signs are pointing to Ben Simmons going No. 1 overall to the 76ers in the NBA draft on Thursday and the LSU star gave a not at all subtle nod to that outcome on Tuesday night.

The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon had the future NBA player chow down on Philadelphia’s most prized delicacy, the cheesesteak sandwich. Simmons reveals he has not had a cheesesteak sandwich from Philadelphia yet before taking a bite.

Eating a cheesesteak in front of The Roots is a very high dose of Philadelphia.

Simmons also spoke about moving to America from Australia, signing with Nike and meeting with LeBron James.
