The Brooklyn Nets earned a 109-102 victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday, but for some fans in the stands, the game wasn’t even the highlight of the night.
Instead, their night was made when Nets star Ben Simmons went out of his way to take a selfie with them.

It’s certainly a moment the kids will never forget, and it’s great to see Simmons enjoying life in the NBA again after going through a difficult 2021-22 season.
The 26-year-old ended up leaving Monday’s game with some discomfort in his left knee, but it doesn’t seem too serious, since it’s called a day-to-day situation.
Nets finally hit .500 again
After Brooklyn’s win over Orlando, the Nets (11-11) are now at .500 again for the first time since they were 1-1.
It’s a step in the right direction for the team, and Simmons played a big role in helping Brooklyn get there.
The three-time All-Star had a very slow start to the season, but that came to an end earlier this month.
Excluding his injury-shortened outing against Orlando on Monday, Simmons has averaged 14.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game since Nov. 17 while shooting a ridiculous 80.4 percent from the field.
Hopefully, his left knee issue won’t keep him out of the lineup for long.
The Nets will return to action on Wednesday for a game against the Washington Wizards at home.
If Brooklyn wins that one, the team will find itself above .500 for the first time this season.
