Philadelphia Sixers superstar Ben Simmons has never made a three pointer in the NBA. Not one.
But now it looks like his shot may be improving. That’s if you believe his new teammate.
During a recent workout with Tobias Harris in Los Angeles, Ben Simmons made a couple of long-range shots.
“Everybody was trying to figure out why I was guarding him at the three-point line, but it was really because he hit two of them,” Harris said Friday. “When I dared him to shoot two of them, he hit two in a row. That’s why I was there. He’s made big improvements on his game. His jump shot is looking really good and he the confidence to shoot.”
Harris says in recent game of 1v1 vs. Simmons, he was daring him to shoot threes, only for Simmons to hit two in a row to force him to guard him out to the line

Listen below to hear Tobias talk about Simmons’ new range.
If Simmons can actually learn to shoot, he’d be one of the most versatile players in the league.
He’s already a bonafide All-Star, so just imagine how great he could be if he actually learned to shoot outside of 5 feet.
