As a 6’10” rookie, Ben Simmons is averaging 17.4 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 7.8 assists (fifth in the NBA) for the Philadelphia 76ers. That’s pretty incredible all-around production, and gives you a good idea of why the Sixers selected the LSU product with the first pick of the 2016 NBA Draft.
Simmons has been playing a lot of point guard (which is amazing for his size) for Philadelphia, and on the following play, he brought the ball up the floor before using his great instincts and athleticism to make a ridiculous play off the ball.
Watch Simmons make a great backcut on the baseline to the basket and throw down a reverse alley-oop dunk:
Simmons had 22 points, 12 rebounds, and four assists in Philadelphia’s impressive 109-105 road win over the Clippers. These young Sixers are going to be very fun to be pretty damn fun to watch in the coming years.
