James and Simmons embrace during their first NBA clash this week. James is one of the greatest passer of all time, but he also enjoys a ball-dominant style. It's hard to say James would " hurt " any team in the NBA , but he would certainly change the Sixers' dynamic and how they operate.

Plenty of hype preceded the match-up, with James the four-time NBA MVP, and Simmons considered a future superstar of the sport, going head-to-head in an NBA game for the first time.

James took Simmons under his wing in 2014 when the then 17-year-old attended the LeBron James Skills Academy in Las Vegas and two years later Simmons signed with James' management company Klutch Sports Group.

The physically-gifted, 208cm tall, Simmons, whose speed and exceptional passing skills allow him to play point guard, has been compared to the 203cm tall James, who has similar attributes.

The 76ers connected with just 36 of their 96 field goal attempts, including missing 25 of their 28 three-point shots.
