VIDEO: Sixers star Ben Simmons hits insane circus shot vs. Clippers
Philadelphia 76ers star point-forward Ben Simmons may not have the long-range bomb that everyone wanted him to have, but the Sixers star can definitely shoot the ball in a variety of ways.
The 23-year-old Australian native made his move to the basket off a Joel Embiid–assisted screen before pivoting and throwing up a wild shot without looking at the rim (via ClutchPoints NBA).

Simmons and the Sixers have faced an onslaught of criticism in recent weeks, including Tuesday night when All-Star center Embiid was booed during pre-game introductions at home.
The Sixers haven’t looked up to snuff with contending peers like the Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors, and that has clearly disappointed their fans. After all, preseason predictions had Philly reaching the Eastern Conference Finals given their lineup and offseason acquisition of Al Horford and Josh Richardson.
Ben Simmons possesses an uncanny ability on the court, and magical plays like this seem to follow the former Rookie of the Year. However, fans are certainly hoping that he can lead the team to more wins.
