Ben Simmons attempted a legitimate three point shot during the Sixers win over the Lakers on Sunday. To say he doesn’t attempt many three pointers is an overstatement.
The shot attempt was a shock to almost everyone in attendance. It also came after Ben’s girlfriend Kendall Jenner was caught eyeing LeBron James.
Coincidence? We think not.

After the game, Joel Embiid admitted he was one of the ones caught off guard by the shot.

This is why Embiid is the best. He can’t help but keep it real. We almost can’t believe he didn’t bring up Kendall checking LeBron out as the reason Simmons decided to put up the shot, but we’re confident he eventually will.
