RED ALERT EVERYONE
The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. I could care less if it’s preseason or not, after two full seasons in the NBA, 76ers point guard Ben Simmons just made his first three pointer

In all seriousness, this is an extremely good sign. Coming into a year where expectations are through the roof, Simmons will in fact have to find a way to make defenses respect him on the perimeter. He doesn’t need to look like Steph Curry out there, but knocking down wide open set shots is a great starting point.
Other than that, the Sixers have looked great in their first preseason game of the fall. They’re up 82-41 on the “Long-Lions” at the half, Embiid and Simmons are leading the charge with a combined 36 points. Rookie Matisse Thybulle has also impressed fans early on, recording 2 steals and 2 blocks in just 11 and a half minutes.
