The talent pool in the NBA is perhaps deeper than any league in any current professional sport. LeBron James has firmly established himself on the Mount Rushmore of basketball players. Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors are in the midst of celebrating one of the greatest dynasties in league history. Russell Westbrook is putting up triple-double numbers at a pace never before seen. So when Ben Simmons captured Rookie of the Year honors following the 2017-18 season, it signaled more than just a trophy for the point-forward. It put him firmly among the NBA's next generation of great players. He recorded 12 triple-doubles during the regular season and helped the 76ers to a record of 52-30, which was their best mark since the NBA Finals season of 2000-2001. The Sixers reached the second round of the playoffs behind Simmons and the best is yet to come. His Rookie of the Year honor is celebrated in his unique logo design that is laser engraved onto an official Spalding game ball. Simmons has autographed this limited edition (125) authentic Spalding basketball in silver paint pen. His signature is deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated's Five-Step Process.
