As a team, the 76ers shot 50 percent from the field and eight of 27 from the three-point line as they made light work of the shorthanded Mavericks after taking a 13-point lead going into halftime. "Me, 100 percent", Simmons told ESPN's Chris Haynes.
The figures are even more impressive when one considers only other five players in the history of the league-Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson, LeBron James and James Harden-have maintained the same average over the course of a season and only Robertson did so in his rookie year.
Did you see the Sixers score 132 points against the Cavaliers last week?
When asked which other rookies have caught his attention this season, though, Simmons gave a surprisingly blunt answer. So, for me, I watch the guys like [Kevin Durant ], [LeBron James], [Stephen] Curry, Russell [ Westbrook ]. Guys like that. That's where I want to be.

Their 50th victory of the season clinched home-court advantage in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Mitchell is second on the all-time 3-point rookie list. "So there's a rule in there". Simmons' personal duel with James was one to savour for basketball purists, with a simply ridiculous array of skills on display between the two providing tangible evidence to suggest Simmons could be the heir apparent to "The King's' sizeable throne". At that time, the rookie point guard already had 13 points and 12 rebounds. Philadelphia won their 14 straight as they defeated Dallas 109-97 at home Sunday afternoon.
Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said, "We are growing a culture".
"None", Simmons said to ESPN.
The Grizzlies, who snapped a four-game losing streak and won for the first time in April, recorded their highest point total of the season.
"Championships", Simmons said. "I want to be the Defensive Player of the Year. MVP. There's a lot of accolades I want to get, but I ultimately want to win a ring".
