Ben Simmons may not be honing his craft in games with the Sixers during Las Vegas Summer League play, but that doesn’t mean the former No. 1 overall pick isn’t putting in work.
Simmons took to Instagram on Tuesday night with a post of his latest workout on UNLV’s campus. The video shows Simmons raining jumpers from beyond the three-point line (albeit the college three). For a guy that only made 1 of 3 triples while at LSU, we’re not about to nitpick.
In the words of the great Sidney Deane, "It's pretty, it's so pretty."
