Videos: Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum talk Ben Simmons, 76ers Game 1

The Philadelphia 76ers may have a bright future ahead of them, but the Boston Celtics reminded them the world - round or flat - does not revolve around them.

They are likely going to have Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum - if not more of the current youth movement - in their path to the finals for the foreseeable future, and last night was a strong reminder of that fact.

Still, the 76ers have a solid core with Joel Embiid, Markelle Fultz, and Ben Simmons - the latter of which was one of the few bright spots for Philly last night.

Watch the videos below to hear what Marcus Smart and Jayson Tatum had to say about their game against that young, er, "rookie", including the chippy play between Smart and Simmons, and the series more generally.
