Ben Simmons eats his first Philly cheesesteak

Ben Simmons isn't officially a member of the Philadelphia 76ers quite yet, but he received a good taste of his future city on Tuesday. The NBA draft's presumptive No. 1 pick appeared onNBC's "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon and ate his first cheesesteak from Philadelphia on live television.

"I can live in Philly," Simmons said after his first bite. The cheesesteak wasn't Simmons' only taste of Philadelphia on Tuesday. He alsoworked out for the 76ers before he was promised by the team to be their No. 1 pick on Thursday night, according to multiple reports.

Despite reports of the 76ers' promise to Simmons, the former LSU star's lips are sealed. "We'll find out Thursday," Simmons said when Fallon asked if Simmons knew where he'd be drafted.
