VIDEO: Ben Simmons Shocks Philadelphia and Drills First 3-Pointer of His Career

It is with great pleasure that we are able to convey this elegant footage of NBA history. Ladies and gentleman, Ben Simmons, for the first time in his career -- which has spanned 171 games entering the Philadelphia 76ers' tilt against the New York Knicks on Wednesday night -- has SPLASHED a three-pointer.

Is it just us or was that actually a pretty stroke? Perhaps it lies in the fact that Simmons caught the ball in rhythm and Mitchell Robinson gave him about 15 feet of space to set up his jumper.

Whatever the case, the only thing missing from this glorious piece of content is Mike Breen's signature "BANG!"

We made it, folks. We never thought we'd see the day where Simmons netted a shot from distance, but we finally made it.
