Potential No. 1 draft pick Ben Simmons recently signed with Nike, and is now displaying his acting chops for Foot Locker.
The SLAM 199 cover subject asks reigning Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns for advice about the NBA. Towns says getting drafted means nothing—that the real work is about to begin.
Suns guard Devin Booker echoes the sentiment, and Simmons asks Lakers guard D’Angelo Russell if there’s anything else he should be aware of.
D’Angelo’s advice—as you can imagine—is the best (and most hilarious) of all.
