Ben Simmons still hasn’t shot a 3

The 76ers are a very good team.

They’re 5-0 in the early-going, despite Joel Embiid’s suspension after getting into it with Karl-Anthony Towns, and are playing the Suns tonight, whose 4-2 start will soon be a distant memory.

But you shouldn’t let that distract you from the fact that Ben Simmons, who sent out Twitter vids all offseason of him shooting effortless 3-pointers against YMCA competition, still has not attempted a 3-point shot in a real game this season. He is a cool zero for zero.

In fact, he’s doubling down on his rim-crashing style:

The corner 3-point shot is the closest 3-pointer on NBA court, at 22 feet, which means the farthest shot he’s taken in 2019 is still eight feet being a 3-pointer.
