Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The suffering of Sixers fans has been rewarded after all. After the team finished with the worst record in the NBA in 2015-16, the ping-pong gods responded accordingly, handing the Sixers the first pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

Things are looking up, guys. Enjoy this moment and dream of better days ahead.
