Ben Simmons has never hit a three-pointer in his NBA career, having gone 0-for-13 in his two seasons in the league. The 76ers star is a talented playmaker but has yet to develop a serviceable jumper. Don't worry though, he's testing it out on Sunday!

Simmons' is still shooting 0 percent from beyond the arc, but that didn't stop NBA fans from losing their minds over the fact that he took the shot. The 22-year-old has been known to pass up open threes in order to facilitate for his team, but not this time. Give us more, Ben!
Whoa - Ben Simmons just decided to pull up from 3 out of nowhere, and almost made it, too. That was a surprise.— Tim Bontemps (@TimBontemps) February 10, 2019

If this is the reaction for Simmons attempting a three, we can't wait until the 22-year-old actually makes one. The entire league would go on hold for a day in order to celebrate the monumental occurrence.
