At this point, it's no secret that Ben Simmons is one of the NBA's worst shooters.

While he still brings a lot to the table offensively, his refusal to even attempt jump shots has become a serious concern, and his inability to hit free throws might have cost them a few playoff games already.

With trade rumors running rampant, and the Sixers' future still in question, many are wondering just where things went wrong for Simmons.

Perhaps even more bizarrely, he seems to have regressed from his Rookie year. On Twitter, fans stumbled upon some footage of Ben shooting in Summer League. He looked confident and smooth -- both attributes he lacks now from distance.

Needless to say, the community is just in awe and confused over Simmons' shooting woes.

Obviously, Summer League is a different animal than regular-season NBA basketball. Still, the confidence he shot with back then shows, and it differs vastly from what we see today from Ben.

The question is, can he ever regain that form? Can he get his confidence back?

With some more time, training, and help, anything is possible. But until Simmons really starts to develop his jumper, his game and his team will always be limited.
