It's been a long, painful three years for Philadelphia 76ers fans, but it might finally all be worth it: On Tuesday night, they were awarded the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

And while we'll now spend the next six weeks debating whom Philly should actually select with the pick, it was all irrelevant on Tuesday. When the ping pong balls went their way, 76ers fans (and front office personnel) went absolutely bonkers.

Take a look at the videos below.

Say what you want about Philly fans, but they've been through quite a bit.

Whether Brandon Ingram or Ben Simmons turns into the next great NBA player, or just another good player in a league full of them, give 76ers fans credit for sticking with their team through the bad times.

They deserved last night.
