Ben Simmons Gifts Carson Wentz With Custom Sixers Sneakers
The Philadelphia 76ers sure do know how to bring the four major sports together. It all starts with the traditional bell ringing before the game. Minutes before tip-off during home games, the Sixers have a high-profile celebrity, athlete, etc. step on the court for a moment and ring the bell to get the crowd hype, and the evening started off right.
Being that the Wells Fargo Center gets rocking nowadays for Sixers games, they make sure to get the other three major sports involved as well. During intermissions, there's always a good chance that there's another Philadelphia-based pro athlete in the building. Typically, they are from the Philadelphia Eagles. However, Phillies and Flyers players get involved as well.
With the Sixers being in the playoffs now, it looks like one of their players wants to keep up with their theme to correspond with the playoff campaign's slogan, "Phila Unite." So on his day off, Sixers' star guard Ben Simmons put on his fashion designer hat and started working on some sneakers that resemble the Sixers' playoff logo containing the seven, six, and the snake around it. Once he was done, he sent a pair to Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Carson Wentz, who proceeded to show them off via Social Media.
