The Internet Is Freaking Out Over Recent Ben Simmons Jump Shot Reel

Despite being hailed as one of the NBA's premier young talents, Ben Simmons has one glaring flaw: he can't shoot.

With only 17 total 3-point attempts in his career, Simmons is limited to a scoring attack on the inside. He is a dominant player regardless, but his game (and the performance of his team) is severely limited as a result of his poor shooting.

But are those woes in the past? In a recently released footage, Simmons is seen shooting -- and hitting -- from beyond the arc.

Needless to say, people were freaking out.

We still don't know if this is some fluke or what, but Simmons appears to have discovered his shot this offseason.

If he can maintain it over the course of the next several months, he and his team might find themselves on a new level of dominance this year.
