Fact: If Ben Simmons is selected first overall, he will join Shaquille O'Neal as one of only two LSU players to be taken with the No. 1 pick of the NBA draft. It would also make LSU just the second SEC school to have multiple No. 1 picks. (The first was Kentucky, with Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Davis and John Wall.)
