Ben Simmons' career certainly didn't start off on the right FOOT...(haha).

But no, seriously, the foot injury that sidelined him for an entire season pretty much made sure the world forgot how good he really is.

Other youngsters like Devin Booker, Karl-Anthony Towns, and Brandon Ingram soon found themselves taking over the spotlight.

This season, he's out to prove that he still belongs with the best. And so far, he's done one hell of a job. In just 6 games, Ben Simmons totaled 100 points, 50 rebounds, 40 assists, joining Oscar Robertson as the only two players to have ever done this amazing feat.

The stat is probably welcome news for Philly fans, after finding out that the 2017 #1 draft pick, Markelle Fultz, is out for a few weeks with a shoulder injury.

As bad as that is, at least they have two other exceptional players to help keep them going in the meantime. Looks like "the Process" is going strong in Philadelphia, and it's in large part due to #25 himself.
