Young Sixers star Ben Simmons is known to be good friends with free agent LeBron James.

Sixers fans have fantasized about the duo teaming up for what would be an earth-shattering move for Philly sports fans.

Word broke earlier on Friday that James would be opting to test free agency instead of exercising his player option with the Cleveland Cavaliers (see story).

Then later in the day Simmons posted the below image to his Instagram story.

KJ x FP likely means King James x Fresh Prince, the latter being a nickname Simmons has gone with in recent months. Is this Simmons hinting that he knows something about James' decision? Or simply wishful thinking from the Aussie? Only time will tell.
