Has there ever been a joke about Ben Simmons' jump shot (or lack thereof) that hasn't been hysterical?
Sure, its become a bit redundant over time, but with confidence, we'd say it's still a guaranteed killer.
Earlier on Thursday, ahead of Game 3 of their first round battle with the Sixers, a group of Nets fans might have pulled off the joke of the year, with a "Missing" poster that featured very distinguishing characteristics about the Sixers guard.
"Identifying characteristics: Just average."
"Last seen: Drinking in Orlando."
Tens across the entire board. This takes the award, and we don't want to hear any of your rebuttals. It's one thing to just put up a missing sign, but to include those little digs really elevates the joke from chuckle-worthy to hilarious.
There's a missing person flyer for the jump shot of Ben Simmons heading into Game 3 at Barclays Center. This brings back memories of the Deron Williams missing poster from a few years ago. (Photo: @APOOCH) pic.twitter.com/X3S3LIdIFM— Michael Scotto (@MikeAScotto) April 18, 2019
We would like to mention, however, that this is a bit hypocritical of these Brooklyn fans, as they are trolling a man who put up an 18-10-12 triple-double on them on Tuesday.
Then again, what sports fan isn't petty and willing to troll at the first sight of possibility?
Get your popcorn ready, folks. Game 3 seems destined to deliver the theatrics.
