Ben Simmons is keeping some elite statistical company in his rookie season.

On Sunday, the 21-year-old Philadelphia 76ers sensation became just the second rookie to ever log 600 rebounds and 600 assists in a season, joining Oscar Robertson. Earlier this month, Simmons had joined Robertson and Magic Johnson as just the third player in NBA history to notch 1,000 points, 500 rebounds, and 500 dimes as a rookie.

Simmons scored 20 points and tied his career-high with 15 assists in Sunday's 119-102 win over the Charlotte Hornets, putting together a highlight-reel performance.

The 76ers have now won 10 in a row. Simmons remains the favorite to take home NBA Rookie of the Year honors.
