10,000 miles from Philly, Sixers star Ben Simmons has his native Australia obsessed

Gaze himself had been a national face of the sport, had played in five Olympics and been the flag bearer for Australia when Sydney hosted the 2000 Summer Olympics. The National Basketball League’s MVP trophy is named for him, since he had won it seven times. Coincidentally, with the Sydney Kings, he leads a franchise once coached by Sixers coach Brett Brown, who had been an assistant with the Melbourne Tigers while Gaze played for the team.
