Video: Ben Simmons sinks the second 3-pointer of his career vs. Cavs
Ben Simmons’ 3-point shooting — or lack thereof — has been a favorite within the NBA meme circle but the Philadelphia 76ers point guard has given fans plenty of reasons to rejoice after converting another long-distance shot. His second career 3-pointer came early in the Sixers’ game against the Cleveland Cavaliers Saturday night.

Simmons entered the matchup having attempted only 20 long-distance shots in his entire career. While his shooting struggle is indeed dumbfounding, it also shows the former LSU Tiger’s uniqueness. In spite of his glaring flaw, Simmons remains as one of the best young players in the NBA.
If and when he finds his mark from the outside, the entire league would surely be put on notice. For now, opponents who already find the Sixers playmaker a handful would have to be content with the kind of headache they’re currently dealt.
