The Philadelphia 76ers are sitting at the top of the Eastern Conference so due to that accomplishment, it is customary to send multiple people to the All-Star game. They have Joel Embiid being voted in as a starter and Doc Rivers having to coach Team Durant, the Sixers will now send a third member to Atlanta.

Ben Simmons will be selected to the game for a third straight season as he is averaging 15.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 7.9 assists. The stat line might not jump out at anybody, but his play on the floor is definitely All-Star worthy and he makes a big impact on this Sixers team on an every-night basis.

While Simmons made the roster, Tobias Harris did not. Harris is having a terrific season of his own averaging 20.6 points and 7.8 rebounds while shooting 51.3% from the floor and 40.3% from deep. It is unfortunate for Harris. but he can now prove everybody wrong for the rest of the season.
