He's one of the biggest names in the NBA at the moment, and the twitter world reacted accordingly when news broke of NBA No.1 draft pick Ben Simmons' broke his right foot.
Simmons, the Philadelphia 76ers rookie, rolled his right ankle during the final scrimmage of the team's training camp at Stockton University and x-rays and an MRI revealed the fracture in the fifth metatarsal bone of the Aussie's foot.
And twitter was quick to produce social media reaction gold.

There's still no news when Simmons will be ready to make his NBA debut, but this is definitely not the start the rookie wanted to his NBA career.
