Video: Ben Simmons makes full-court shot
In an Instagram video he posted on Tuesday, the 20-year-old Australian international showed off his unlimited range, by heaving the ball from the opposite corner of the court, and knocking it down.
The former LSU Tiger missed the entire 2016-17 campaign after he suffered a Jones Fracture on his foot during the last day of training camp. After months of speculation on when he’ll play his first NBA game, the team announced that he will not be able to suit up for the team yet, and that his best chance to finally play is this coming season.
Simmons is now looking healthier than ever, and showing no signs of the injury still hampering his movement. With the addition of Markelle Fultz and J.J. Redick to the Sixers’ fold this summer, their fans cannot wait to see them all in action, as they believe they can once again become a winning group and make it back to the playoffs.
