Philadelphia 76ers Ben Simmons Finally Has A 3 Pointer Under His Belt, That Too Being A Buzzer-Beater.

Every Ben Simmons fan knows too well the strengths and weaknesses the prestigious young player holds. However, they’ll also agree about the one thing that he can’t do – shoot. Well, this doesn’t apply now. That’s right, in a pointless preseason game against Guangzhou Long-Lions, the prodigious player hit a three-pointer.

Fans awestruck at the surprise

Majority of NBA fans are aware of how good a player Ben Simmons is. However, he had never shot a wide range shot or more like never tried one. This had everyone doubt how high his ceiling was. On Tuesday night, he broke everyone’s presumptions.

When the ball got to Simmons’ hands, he did the unthinkable. He went behind the arc to take a shot. And finally, the young star player earned the first three-pointer of his career.

Firstly, the Philadelphia 76ers were already leading with a 79-41 before the half-time. So, we can rule out the possibility of stress bringing out the best in him. Whatsoever be the situation, the fans’ reactions from the court as well as the internet have been overwhelming. This three-pointer was more than the usual one. One of the reasons why is this marks his first wide range shot. Throughout the first two years of his career in NBA, Simmons’ jump shots have been tremulous. So much so that he’s barely even tried them. Over the course of 182 matches, he has attempted only 18 three-pointers and failed at them.

Worked hard before the match

The 23-year-old Aussie player has put in a lot of hard work before the matches. Simmons spent his offseason working on his limitations which had everyone doubting him. Regular workout videos surfaced on the internet of him knocking down threes and pull-up jumpers. Coach Bret Brown asserted he would put Simmons in a position to shoot, more.

Although, it could end up being absolutely nothing, the hope of a better player rising out of the ashes persists. Whatever be the case in the future, we can agree it was fun to watch. Fans had their jaw-drop. And if it paves the way to something better, so be it.
