We Were WRONG About Ben Simmons...3pt THREAT!!!

Watching Ben Simmons airball completely wide open threes is nothing new.
I mean look at this shot. It looks like a total amateur shot it.
But what if I told you the secret that nobody mentions. That Simmons is actually a huge 3 point threat.
Confused? Let me explain. What up everybody my name is Stefan and this is Heat Check. Let’s get into it.
The sixers point guard is 1 for 6 from downtown so far this season, and here is the only three for you to see in all of its glory.
However even with this insignificant line, and even with all the criticism towards him throughout the years, there is one statistic that will completely change your perception about him in relation to 3 point shooting. Check this out.
Simmons leads the league in 3 point assists with 93, but the most staggering thing is the fact that when Ben Simmons is on the floor, the Sixers are shooting almost 41% on threes which is the second best percentage in the league at the moment. However when he’s off the floor, that number goes down to 29.0% which is by far the worst mark of any team in the league.
That’s an unbelievable difference and we have to go deeper and try to break down why this happens.
To be honest however, the story is pretty simple. The guy is a 1 man wrecking crew.
Right here, he goes head first against 4 Timberwolves defenders all trying to stop him from getting to the rim.
And as you can see, with nobody around him-Tobias Harris has all the time in the world to shoot this practice shot.
And against Boston, at this moment Simmons is almost the last person on the court, but he outruns everyone with the ball in his hands, and again 4 guys around him, finds the open shooter and the bucket of course.
And I can already hear you saying it, this is in transition but what happens when the game slows down. In half court offense. Well check out what happens.
Right here Embiid is fighting for position and seems open for the lob. Ben is gonna fake the pass and get the help defender to commit and then rifle a bullet pass to Danny Green in the corner. There’s no time for a recovery and the open shot goes in.
There are a ton of examples however as you can see- where Simmons penetrates and outmuscles his primary defender, so the help has to come, and he’s so intelligent that as soon as he sees that second body, immediately looks for the shooter.
It’s either the penetration or the backdown that forces the opposing teams to send help and to leave a guy like Seth Curry, Danny Green or Tobias Harris just waiting for their opportunity to knock it down.
And speaking of Seth Curry I’ve said it in a previous video but to me the guy really is an elite shooter. He’s not just Steph’s brother anymore. Way more than that. Shooting 49.3% from downtown is absolutely deadly, and if I’m Doc Rivers, I will look for ways to get his attempts way higher, since 2 out of 4 shots is way too low, Curry has proven that he can knock it down.
But back to Simmons, I just wanted to make this video just for myself first and foremost, since I’m really not the biggest fan of his. I feel like having no shot is really limiting especially in the playoffs, but then when I saw the numbers it hit me, and I guess Doc Rivers was right when he said that in order to really appreciate Ben, you need to coach him, and really see how the game goes with and without him. Both on offense and on defence.

  • He don’t realllly need a three. Reminds me of draymond but a more point friendly version. Both can be used as primary ball handlers. Steph has historically played better with dray at the point. If Ben can get a little bit more dog in him it’ll be aight. And a few threes here and there

  • Can't win a playoff series against a top opponent though because they will scheme him out of the lane. Doc hasn't won in the current 3 point generation so there is no reason to think he can scheme in a late series game. The role players will shrink in the playoffs, which means Ben will as well because he relies on assists to be great. Winning a game 6 or 7 in a series requires great individual efforts from stars and identifying which role player is on fire. Hell, they could hack a simmons late in games if he drives to the hoop which means they do not have to double. Regular season is completely different because teams just don't prepare very well night in and night out.

  • If Seth Curry Becomes the PG . He can get so many shots off of give and goes , and then half way through the game Ben Simmons runs PG again throwing off the other team creating more plays for Seth Off-ball. Everyone is saying Ben Simmons and Joel Needs to be better but if Seth Becomes a Better playmaker he can be on par with his brother . When when Steph was younger they Brought in Shaun Livingston to be the playmaker when Steph was still learning to be a playmaker . They had other playmakers in Barbosa and Draymond but when Steph took the reins the team was on another level . That can be the Sixers if Seth takes that leap

  • How ridiculous! He's a terrible three-point shooter and always will be. Yeah they shoot better threes when he's on the floor because he's a great passer, and a real threat going downhill. Has he made a dozen threes in the NBA? I'm not sure but I don't think so. I get your clickbait metaphor, if you want to call it that. But not everybody has unlimited data. Why don't you post that although he's a shity 3-point shooter he helps his team make threes? I'll be honest I didn't watch more than 30 seconds of the video once I saw where you were going. Of all the things Ben Simmons can do, why would you post that he makes threes?

  • Excellent analysis -- check the stats, watch the tape -- yes, it's odd that Ben Simmons' lack of a jump shot doesn't hurt his team . . . but it may help, in that such a ball dominant point guard is determined to get his teammates involved.
