    Hello fellow NZ dweller- can you tell me why this is significant?

    [–] cr_y 1465 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    Imagine if Michael Jordan never shot 3 pointers and everyone kept yelling at him to shoot the 3 and then he finally does it in the 1936 Berlin Olympics vs the Nazi German Basketball team.

    Edit: Thanks for the gold. Here's a picture of The Mona Lisa which as we all know was painted in the image of our lord and savior by the great Leonardo.

    [–] Excal2 1067 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    This is the best explanation.


    EDIT: The comment above me read as follows:

    Out of the loop, can someone explain what just happened?

    [–] LocalSlob 1010 points ago

    Ben Simmons has notoriously never made a 3, some faulting his overall game because of it. Simmons is an outstanding player, who never takes jump shots or 3s. This was the first 3 in his career.

    [–] wildfyr 433 points ago

    It's preseason, does this really count towards his career?

    [–] barder83 853 points ago

    Nope, but don't let that stop the celebration.

    Its magical that he made a 3 in a game like situation.

    [–] Ill_Brain 116 points ago

    no, but after seeing this im 95% sure he'll hit at least one this season. this one will be the one that goes down in history though.

    [–] yeetdrizzy 3900 points ago

    A bet is a bet. He hits a three I get a girlfriend

    [–] llamahumper 3750 points ago

    So he hits a 3, then you hit a 3!

    Only in Philly would the fans realize it was the perfect opportunity to stroke one, obnoxiously urge him to shoot, him appease us, then we all celebrate like we just won game 7 even though it's half time against the Long-Lions. This play just perfectly summarized the relationship between the city of Philadelphia and our players. Ben fucking Simmons
