The Philadelphia 76ers will have the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. The drama started earlier in the day when Dikembe Mutombo accidentally tweeted that the Sixers had the No. 1 pick already. The conspiracies started immediately and yet ... Dikembe was right.

Fans of the Sixers and our Sixers Blog, Liberty Ballers got together for a huge draft party. Their reaction to the results being announced was so freaking great.

And Stubhub was already alive and well on Sixers jerseys.
We still think Dikembe knew.
Maybe the Sixers are finally on the way up?
