LSU Basketball: Photo: Top Ranked 2015 Recruit Ben Simmons Makes LeBron James Look Short

Ben Simmons is the consensus No. 1 player in the 2015 recruiting class, and many believe the LSU signee will be the top overall pick when the 2016 NBA Draft rolls around. This morning, the Montverde Academy product posted a photo he took with a former top pick, the best player the sport has to offer: LeBron James. While he comments on how LeBron's "always flexing," Simmons does appear to have an inch or so on the four-time NBA MVP.

We're pretty pumped to see Simmons and LSU get into the mix in the SEC during the upcoming season. If he lives up to the hype, Simmons vs. James will probably play out on the court in a few short years.
