Jimmy Kimmel to Markelle Fultz: Pat's or Geno's?

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- When you are the number one pick in the NBA Draft, you are in high demand for interviews.

Moments after being selected No. 1 overall by the Philadelphia 76ers, guard Markelle Fultz was answering questions from national reporters, Action News' Jeff Skversky, and even Guillermo.

That's right, the newest 76er appeared on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' Thursday night.

Though Guillermo held the microphone, Jimmy Kimmel did the questioning.

Kimmel's first question to Fultz was cheesesteak related, of course.

"What do you like? Pat's or Geno's? Because if you're going to live there you're going to have to pick a side," Kimmel said.

"I actually haven't been to either one yet. I've been going to like Larry's," Fultz replied.

Kimmel then asked Fultz what it was like to be picked first in a sport because he said, "that never happened to me."

Fultz called it a blessing. He said now that he's a professional basketball player, he'll take care of his family.

"That's what is going to make me happy," Fultz said.

Fultz then showed off his shoes made out of basketballs.

"Good luck to you in Philadelphia," Kimmel told Fultz.
