Ben Simmons: “If it’s Open, I’ll Take it”
The Sixers gathered for their annual media day at the on Monday to open the new season. While the biggest headline as it pertained to the team may have happened last week when head coach Brett Brown proclaimed the No. 1 seed is the goal, there were a variety of other storylines that emerged from the opening of the Sixers season.
But none were bigger than Ben Simmons.
After two seasons where he failed to connect on a single three-point shot, Ben Simmons says "if it's open, I'll take it." Now entering his third season Simmons says he no longer cares what people think.
"I'm gonna work, I'm gonna miss shots, I'll probably air ball a few, but I'm also going to make shots," Simmons told NBA TV. “I was able to be an All-Star without that element of my game last season, and just adding that is a scary thing.”
Simmons has been a dominate player at times, but seed to lack confidence in some moments, and when it came to a jump-shot, he had zero confidence. However, if he can add confidence to his game, along with a jump-shot and three-point shot, Simmons could take his game to another level.
