Joel Embiid may be the most visible player on the Sixers with his endless social media antics, but Ben Simmons is the engine that makes the team go. The Australian national is basically a 6'10 point guard who can rebound, find the open man and finish at the rim. He leads the team in assists, is second on the squad in rebounds and leads the league in steals.

He may not have an outside shot yet, but Simmons drives this team with his overall skill set.

When the Sixers are looking for a basketball, who is the player they would rather take the shot? When the opposition is looking to get a shot close to the basket, who is the one protecting the paint? Ben Simmons is important, but Joel Embiid is the man and the team wouldn't be successful without him.

Embiid is averaging 24 points and opponents' offensive rating is 6.5 points better when he is off the court. He impacts the game and the Philadelphia's MVP.
