New Vision Emerges Of Ben Simmons Practicing Jump Shots

New Vision Emerges Of Ben Simmons Practicing Jump Shots

Sixers fans, listen up: Ben Simmons can shoot.

New footage has emerged on social media of the Philadelphia point guard practicing his jump shot prior to the NBA restart on August 30 - and his technique looks flawless.

In a video released on Simmons' personal YouTube, Detroit Pistons small forward Tony Snell is seen praising the Aussie for his shooting during a drill with trainer Chris Johnson in Los Angeles.

"You should shoot way more dawg, your shot looks good," Snell said.

While his jumper is clearly coming on leaps and bounds, Simmons isn't exactly renowned for his shooting - which makes this new vision even more mouth-watering for excited Philly fans.

Despite sinking his first career three-pointer earlier in the season, the two-time All Star is still just 6 from 34 from the 10 foot range in his career.

That being said, it appears a slight positional change has encouraged the 23-year-old to perfect his craft further - which for him means attempting (and sinking) more jumpers during the revamped 2020 season in Walt Disney World.

Simmons' new-found love for the jump shot, combined with a deadly positional switch which could see him line up alongside dominant powerhouse Joel Embiid in the 76ers frontcourt, has Philadelphia coach Brown eager for his team to challenge for a Championship.

"He's so dynamic," Brown told reporters.

"Let's just talk about running. There's nobody faster in the NBA. So to always have the ball and dribble it up against five guys ... to do that dilutes some of his potent weapons.

"So, watching him fly up the floor, watching him and Joel [Embiid] play off each other, has been a really good look. I think they've been fantastic together."

While Sixers fans are undoubtedly impressed with Simmons' shooting-focused practice regimes, what they really want to see is the Aussie taking the inconsistent team by the scruff of the neck and lead them to a Finals berth.

Right now, with the Aussie putting in the hard yards and man mountain Embiid feeling revitalised after some much-needed time off, the 76ers have never been in better shape.
