Ben Simmons hit a three-pointer.

Yes, it was in a preseason game. Yes, it was against a team from the Chinese Basketball Association that you've likely never heard of. But those facts matter not to the Philadelphia faithful who want nothing more than Ben to succeed.

And nail threes from all over the court on the reg. The floodgates have now opened with one beautiful splash.
