Watch: 76ers Fans Explode Upon Receiving First Overall Pick

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Honestly, if you walked into Xfinity Live from another city, you'd think the Philadelphia 76ers were beating the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Except, in reality, fans gathered at Spike Eskin's and Michael Levin's Rights To Ricky Sanchez Draft Lottery Party on Tuesday night hoping their team would acquire the first overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

And after 47 wins and 199 losses over the past three brutal seasons, the vision of Sam Hinkie -- who is no longer here -- was celebrated. The Sixers won the number one pick.

From booing Doug Collins on TV, Sports Illustrated's Andrew Sharp, and 94WIP's Howard Eskin, to chanting Trust The Process, it was a great night for 76ers fans.
