So Ben Simmons’s jumper is considered the missing link, the holy grail, the El Dorado — pick your own favorite term for the ultimate.
Playoff opponents sagged off Simmons like he was the guy at the YMCA wearing jeans in the game. Above is evidence — or at least the hope — that those days are over. Watch Simmons knock down j’s from all over.
